IATSE chief Matt Loeb is re-elected
Matt Loeb was re-elected to serve another four-year term as president of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the union representing Hollywood’s below-the-line crew members.
Over 800 delegates from nearly 400 locals in the U.S. and Canada contributed to the unanimous support for Loeb and the General Executive Board, which was also re-elected at the union’s 67th Quadrennial Convention in Boston.
Loeb and his slate, which includes 13 international vice presidents and three trustees, ran unopposed.
In a statement, the union said Loeb has engineered successful organizing drives across the seven departments of the IA, increased training and emphasized the importance of safer working conditions while opening lines of communication with the membership.
“We will strengthen the infrastructure over the next four years to ensure the success of this great union,” Loeb said.
IATSE is one of the largest entertainment labor unions in the world and represents over 110,000 technicians, artisans and craftspeople employed in stagecraft, motion picture and television production and the trade show industry in the U.S. and Canada.
