Union Council

By August 1st, there is a potential of a strike looming....not SAG or AFTRA, or the WGA...rather the low profile, Teamsters Local 399 who represent thousands of drivers in Los Angeles who transport everything from movie star trailers to movie making equipment. So without out them could mean no moviemaking. The current Teamsters' contract with the studios expires at the end of the month and neither side is budging regarding current negotiations. As SAG and AFTRA primetime negotiations begin in the following months and the DGA (Directors Guild) negotiating in November, could one start to worry about a halt of work in Hollywood?

  1. It would certainly make my job more interesting. I suppose I'd be writing more book and music reviews under a dearth of film product.
