IATSE Sets Strike Date for 60,000 Film and Television Workers https://t.co/ZqtgBmeaJe— Variety (@Variety) October 13, 2021
IASTE will go on strike Monday at 12:01 am if no deal is reached before then.
Union president Matthew Loeb stated Producers do not have any sense of urgency is getting a deal made and the union cannot sit around forever waiting for their needs to be met.
The major ask is that the union is seeking a 10-hour turnaround between shifts, with 54-hour turnaround for weekends. They are also seeking increased meal penalties against studios so that productions can actually stop and take a lunch break.
60,000+ members across the country will stop working and grind all of Hollywood to a hault if a strike occurs.
