International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 40 Hosts Introductory Meeting for VFX Artists




Several sources have reported that IBEW Local 40 hosted an exploratory meeting with Visual Effects artists for possible union representation.

"The IBEW was approached by visual effects artists interested in representation and held this meeting to announce their availability as well as gain insight into the breadth and scope of the industry and what is at stake. The IBEW took the opportunity to discuss what benefits would be offered to VFX artists who organized with them. As it turns out, they too would be able to provide health and pension benefits through the Motion Picture Industry Pension and Health plans. They also talked about their strengths as a union and cited their 726k+ membership and multiple contracts with the studios as selling points to their viability." [TAG Blog]
