The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and Teamsters Local 399 will stage a large rally outside the Burbank headquarters of Original Productions on Monday morning in support of crew members from the TV series "1000 Ways to Die."
"This is about healthcare, this is about safety and dignity in the workplace, and it's part of the IA's ongoing campaign to support workers in the all genres of TV," said Mike Miller, director of motion pictures and television for IATSE.
The union represents about 30 crew members who were fired from the show on Thursday after attempting to unionize. Launched in 2008, the Spike TV show re-creates unusual ways in which people have died.
