The members, friends, families, and employers of IATSE Local's One, 8, and 52 come through amazingly to aid our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico and IATSE Local No. 494. Over twenty five pallets of donated medical supplies, sanitary items, food, and water were donated to help the relief effort. Items donated from Local's One and 52 were dropped off at IATSE Local 8's union hall on Thursday October 26th. Proof Productions Inc. graciously donated labor, materials, and equipment to help prepare and load two shipping containers full of the goods. The genorisity and actions of everyone involved truly shows the bother/sisterhood of International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
Walnut Street Theater UNFAIR.
Over Labor Day weekend The Walnut Street Theatre fired two union stagehands. The company discriminated against a stagehand employee with a disability when it fired him, according to the International Alliance of Stage Employees, (IATSE) Local 8.
