IATSE, the union that represents stagehands and hair, makeup and wardrobe technicians, has reached a tentative agreement with the Broadway League and Disney Theatrical, the union announced Tuesday.
Under the tentative four-year-agreement, IATSE members on Broadway and in touring productions would see increased wages and benefits, “clarification on Prop Supervisors representation on Broadway” and, in the final year of the agreement, compensation for nonperformance calls beginning with the first hour worked. The agreement was negotiated over several months.
“The tentative agreement is quite broad and has gains for all of the various crafts and jurisdictions that fall under the agreement. The negotiations committee that encompassed both Broadway and Touring technicians, and represented the various crafts such as Stagehands, Wardrobe, and Hair and Makeup helped craft this agreement to address the broad scope of issues and concerns of the various members and their crafts,” IATSE president Matt Loeb said in a press release.
