Many Crafts, One Fight- Thousands Rally as IATSE and Hollywood Basic Crafts Unions Kick off Negotiations with the AMPTP 


Solidarity with Hollywood unions continues. Thousands descended on Woodley Park in Van Nuys to rally with the IATSE and Hollywood Basic Crafts unions as they kicked off their negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). 

Crew members, represented by IATSE and the Hollywood Basic Crafts, which includes Teamsters Local 399, LiUNA Local 724, IBEW Local 40, OPCMIA Local 755, and UA 78, are seeking increased wages, improved healthcare, and increased protections around AI and automation.  

These are the remaining unions bargaining with the AMPTP after WGA, SAG-AFTRA ratified contracts, and the AFM reached a tentative agreement, respectively.
