Movie workers take stand for safe jobs
“Fraturday.” That’s the workday that starts on Friday and goes right through Saturday, creating dangerous – and sometimes fatal -- working conditions for far too many in the movie industry, CDavid Cottrill tells Union City. Cottrill is Business Agent for IATSE 488 Studio Mechanics for the Northwest and on today’s Your Rights At Work radio show (1p on WPFW 89.3FM) he’ll discuss the strike vote IATSE is taking tomorrow that could be the largest strike in Hollywood since World War II. Members of the Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) this week launched a petition demanding a sustainable deal for 60,000 behind-the-scenes film and tv workers in the US. “If enough of us sign, we can show we stand as one in our fight to end unsafe hours, unlivable wages and the lack of reasonable rest on set,” said IATSE.
