The leaders of 12 of IATSE`s 13 West Coast residents supported the new three-year interim agreement with studios and networks. Leaders of Editors Guild Local 700 strongly opposed the deal, saying that it fell short on provisions for turnaround time, funding for the pension plan, and new media residues from shows aired on streaming services in a rare instance of dissension within IATSE, which usually has presented a united front. After many difficult rounds of negotiations for months, the IATSE West Coast Studio Locals are overwhelmingly side by side and recommend the agreement reached on July 26. The interim agreement improves wages and working conditions, while ensuring the health of benefit funds for more than 40,000 IATSE members and their families. We have made this progress without increasing health costs for members, reducing the quality of members` health care and reducing the working conditions of members. 2016-2021 Fox Western Regional Agreement 2018-2023 Pettigrew Western Regional Agreement 2018-21 Videotape Electronics Supplemental to Basic Agreement We have negotiations on protecting the retirement and health plan, and this interim agreement is achieving our objectives.
