Become a Local One Member
  • If you are one of the many people working non-union in the areas that support the Entertainment Industry in Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, Westchester and Putnam Counties and have become frustrated in your job because of:

    • Low pay
    • Promised or implied raises which never seem to materialize
    • Irregular or "scattered" hours for which the total compensation fails  to meet your family's basic needs
    • Lack of basic benefits such as health care, vacation, retirement  account and a pension plan
    • Unsafe or unhealthy workplace conditions and your understandable reluctance to call these matters to the attention of your employer for  fear of losing your job.

    I.A.T.S.E. Local One is the solution for you!

    Local One’s Organizing Committee has set up these pages to try to answer your questions about how to Become a Member of Local One, what the benefits are, what your legal protections are, some of the venues organized and to give you the facts about organizing, Local One and working under a union contract.
