Dear All:
 
It has been quite a while since we have sent an update on Local 871’s work to enforce our contract with respect to the Production team on Commercials.  Because the enforcement process is taking such a long time, and there hadn’t been any new developments, we postponed our communications for a bit.
 
However, I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that Local 871 is continuing to work on enforcing our contract and getting you the union benefits and representation that you deserve.  Here are the new developments:
 
  1.  The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued complaints against Radical Media and Biscuit Filmworks for their failure to provide our Local with information that is relevant and necessary to enforcing our Agreement.  A hearing will be held on the complaints on April 11, 2017.
  2. Approximately 40 additional Production Companies have signed Agreements that they will abide by the decision of the NLRB in these cases, and so we withdrew our charges against them.
  3. We have hearing dates against Radical Media for our Arbitration concerning their violation of our contract by not covering your positions in October 2017.  We are still trying to get dates scheduled for the Biscuit Filmworks hearing.  (We agreed with the AICP attorneys that we would move forward with these two arbitrations, and decide what to do with the additional grievances after we get decisions in these two cases.
 
As many of you are aware, we began our outreach to your positions quite some time ago.  At the time, we told you that enforcement would take time.  Unfortunately, it is taking even longer than expected.
 
We would be happy to hold additional informational events if there is interest.  If you would like us to do so, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Leslie Simon at 818-509-7871, ext. 105 or leslie@ialocal871.org.

In Solidarity,
