BENEFITS OF THE 2021 BASIC AGREEMENT
"The labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it."
-MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
The strongest weekend turnaround provision of any IA contract has been negotiated, as well as far stronger protections for meal breaks, and recognition of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday.
IATSE Members will see increased wages for episodic, mini-series, and long-form feature-length productions and increased wages, terms, and conditions for low-budget productions.
A living wage for the lowest paid members, fully funded benefits, substantial improvements in meal penalty payments, and wage increases with a base of 3% per year – and significantly more in many cases.
PROTECTED HEALTH CARE BENEFITS & SICK LEAVE
This Basic Agreement includes numerous protections for our health care benefits. On-going hourly contribution increases, fully funded by employers, would result in $370 million in new money for our Health and Pension Plans funded by employers. Also, workers under the IATSE Basic Agreement across the entire U.S. will be entitled to the same sick leave benefits as California members.
