IATSE Local 871 Reaches Tentative Agreement With Studios

Another IATSE local has a tentative deal with the studios.

Local 871 — which represents a range of workers including script supervisors, teleprompter operators, production coordinators, script coordinators, and writers room assistants — has finalized its negotiations with the AMPTP, according to the union.

That makes seven locals that have now wrapped local-specific talks with the AMPTP.

“The work continues for our remaining Locals’ Negotiating Committees, but there’s significant momentum created by these tentative agreements. I congratulate the Negotiating Committee of Local 871 on their effective work,” IATSE International Vice President Mike Miller said in a statement.

There are still three locals in current negotiations with the AMPTP as of Friday — Studio Electrical Lighting Technicians (Local 728), Costume Designers Guild (Local 892) and the Motion Picture Editors Guild (Local 700).

Locals 700 and 892 are headed back into talks Friday with the hopes of making a deal before the week expires, as next week is reserved for caucusing. While 728 is also still in talks, Deadline understands they will not be in the room with the AMPTP Friday.

Local 700 already extended its negotiations to add an additional day after four days of bargaining last week. Previously, those talks were set to restart on Monday, but they were pushed to Friday.

After caucusing, Locals 44 and 705 will also start negotiations on April 15, with Local 884 slated to start later that week as well.

There’s still a long way to go, with general negotiations for the Basic Agreement expected to start on April 29. Those talks will include issues that impact all members including wage increases, pension and health contributions, artificial intelligence, job security and residuals.
