Strike Date Set for 60,000 Film and Television Workers!

Unless an Agreement is reached, IATSE members will begin a nationwide strike on Monday, October 18th at 12:01am (PDT).

Take Action

Millions of undocumented immigrants, who are vital to our economic recovery, still live in fear because of our outdated and inhumane immigration system. It’s time to put an end to this injustice. Tell your senators to pass a budget that includes a broad pathway to citizenship.

Film and television workers often face excessively unsafe and harmful working hours and unlivable wages. Tell most powerful media corporations on the planet to treat the workers who produce their content with basic human dignity.
