  • Covid 19 Return To Work Agreement
    Posted On: Sep 25, 2020

    After months of negotiations via  the IATSE Locals, DGA, Teamsters and SAG-AFTRA have reached agreement with the producers. Attached to this message please find the complete Agreement and a  separate Summary  document. This is meant to be a living document and contains an Enabling Clause which requires the parties to mee in one month and then every two months following to make additions, tweaks, and changes. The Agreement currently goes thru April 2021.

    As you read through this and more importantly return to work with these protocols we hope you will take note of Covid protocols and procedures that don't work or which are not addressed in the Agreement. Please pass on notes, suggestions and comments to your Business Agents so that we can address these concerns with the International.

    This Agreement supercedes any and all Covid-19 Health & Safety Plans & protocols developed by the Studios/producers. 

    Highlights and big wins in the Agreement are:

    • $250 stipend for testing on non-work day
    • Defintion of the Zones and Testing
    • Up to 10 days of Paid Sick Leave and benefit payments per employer for eligible Covid events
    • $20 per hour for training on non-work day

    Now that this Agreement is in place we hope that the Unions and Guilds move quickly to take it to complete talks with the AICP for a similar agreement for our Commercial work.

    Also IATSE International President Loeb has issued a Directive Regarding Covid-19 Safety Protocols which all members must follow.

    Please contact Melissa and cdavid with questions or concerns about the Agreement.

    And please use your voice with your Steward, the Covid Compliance Team on your project to bring up concerns and point out potential job hazards related to Covid-19.

    Be well and wear your PPE!
