The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) said workers on Hollywood films and television shows will launch a nationwide strike on October 18 unless contract talks with producers are resolved. The IATSE said some 60,000 off-screen workers, including camera operators and make-up artists would be involved.
Matthew Loeb, the president of the IATSE International, announced Wednesday that unless an agreement is reached, union members will begin a nationwide strike against the Alliance of Motion Pictures Producers on Monday at 12:01 a.m. PDT.
Union representing TV and film crews threatens to strike, Social Security benefits increasing in 2022 and Adele announces release date for new album.

Papa Ant We have to put our foot down. Last contract a few yrs ago; we basically bellied up with a poor voter turn out. (That lead to a lot of New Media issues) Now, we have so much momentum and solidarity, that we must go through with this to make a stand This is for us and the future.
