IATSE Holds Strike Authorization Vote, Celebs Voice Their Support


-IATSE, the union that represents 150k workers in the entertainment industry such as editors, grips, cinematographers, costumers, sound techs, hair stlists, writers' assistants, etc is holding a strike authorization vote after stalled contract negotiations
-A strike authorization vote is a way for unions to allow their members to vote on whether they should go on strike or not. If 75% or more of each local votes to authorize, it does not mean they will automatically go on strike but that it will give the bargaining unit the power to call a strike
-If this happens, the entertainment industry will pretty much shut down
-Celebs that have voiced support include Laci Mosley (on her instagram stories) and Jameela Jamil
-IATSE members have been sharing anonymous stories of their hellish working conditions on the instagram account, ia_stories
