IATSE president is stepping down
Thomas C. Short said he would step down as president of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, which represents film and TV show crew members. He has been president of the 110,000-member union since 1994.
Short said he was leaving because he had accomplished his goal of building the union and wanted to enjoy other pursuits. Mat Loeb, an international vice president, will serve the remaining year of Short’s four-year term.
