Sisters, Brothers, Kin, & Allies —
Happy New Year to you and yours! We believe a key part of being an active union member or ally is staying informed. To that end, the IATSE Communications Department is launching
a new weekly newsletter to keep you informed on all things IA.
In solidarity,Team IATSE
With regards to the COVID-19 virus, the safety and well-being of our members and their families is our number one priority.
The International’s Disaster Response Committee is closely following the most up-to-date guidance and information as provided by the Center for Disease Control, The Public Health Agency of Canada, and the World Health Organization, and will continue to relay that information to Local Officers and members. Additionally, we are in constant contact with our health plans and local health care centers to ensure the health and safety of our communities.
We are working with employers across all sectors of the Entertainment Industry on policies that will help prevent infections in our workplaces. With the variety of crafts we represent and the unique challenges that come with each in this situation, we are collaborating with our Local Unions to produce and distribute craft-specific workplace guidelines. If members have any specific workplace health safety concerns, please report it via our Safety Info App (iOS, Play Store), or by talking to your Local Union.
In addition to the obvious health concerns posed by the virus itself, fears of the virus are also wreaking havoc on the economy, and specifically the Entertainment Industry. The honest truth is that many IATSE jobs are at risk as more events and projects are cancelled.
We are actively investigating all possible courses of action that can help ensure the financial stability of members who lose work as a result of the COVID-19 virus. We are also reviewing all of our contracts for any pertinent provisions (i.e. Force Maejure).
Finally, we have created a Coronavirus Update Portal on our website at https://www.iatse.net/coronavirus-update-portal We will continue to publish helpful resources and developments about the COVID-19 virus there.
