Time for Change

Recent events and widely publicized instances of sexual harassment in the workplace have highlighted the need to deal with these matters here and now.

As you know, IATSE members and allies sent over 100,000 letters to Congress urging lawmakers to include displaced entertainment workers in the next legislative relief package, and our voices were heard.

Please join us in thanking Members of Congress for passing H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security “CARES” Act.

Send a letter to your representative here to thank them for hearing our voices and urge them to monitor state unemployment offices and agencies to ensure a successful rollout.

In solidarity,

Sisters, Brothers, Kin —

We share in the heartbreak, frustration and anger surrounding the tragic murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police. We stand in solidarity with the African-American community as together we grieve yet another lawless, racist killing in our country.

The principle that all people are equal and all people are deserving of respect and fair treatment is a cornerstone of the labor movement. As a labor union that represents Black members and people of color of all ethnicities, we have an ethical duty to do everything we can to root out racism in our communities, our homes, and our workplaces, once and for all.

While we are distraught, shaken and angered by the death of George Floyd, we must all join in the conversation for advocacy, effective change, fairness and justice for the African American community. We cannot sit and stay silent as people mourn yet another member of our community, and only the memory of the name be followed by the hashtag #ICantBreathe.

We must and will apply pressure across the board for systematic change to value Black lives through full and unified equal protection under the law, public health, medical care, education, housing, business development, and economic change and equality. We are prepared to advocate for specific, necessary policy and legislation, and we stand ready to lock arms with allies who are primarily focused on racial justice and reform.

Although buildings are burning, a life has been taken, and we cannot lose sight of the countless times our brothers and sisters of the African-American community have been robbed of their lives by acts of injustice, racism and bigotry. Still, we denounce violence and the destruction of property perpetrated by opportunists who seek to take advantage of this painful moment for personal gains. Additionally, it is absolutely unacceptable for the police to target reporters and their crews with violence or arrest for doing their constitutionally protected jobs.

As people of conscience, it is each individual’s duty to keep the momentum of the moment to evoke change by educating ourselves on the issues, speaking to our local politicians, and getting involved with local social justice chapters. Together, we must continue to peacefully protest for change, protest for justice, protest for inclusivity, and protest for equality.

In solidarity,
IATSE Communications
