WHAT CAN THE IATSE DO FOR YOU?
Negotiate a contract that is legally binding and spells out your working conditions and rights. Without a contract, your employer can change your wages and working conditions at any time.
Provide job security by ensuring due process in the event your employer seeks to discipline or fire you.
Ensure a safe work environment.
Provide training to upgrade skills and master new technologies.
Improve your wages. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, workers represented by unions earn higher wages than their non-union counterparts in virtually every category of employment.
Provide for health insurance and retirement security. BLS studies also confirm that union-represented employees are more likely to receive health and retirement benefits from their employer.
