The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, one of the largest unions in Hollywood, plans to strike against the newly formed Pac-12 Network, calling it an “unfair employer,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
According to the report, the union said in a statement that the Pac-12 has used non-union members, which typically means lower wages for workers and no benefits for workers. Little has come of negotiations between the two sides.
“The skills and commitment of the broadcast technicians we represent are unparalleled,” IATSE President Matthew Loeb said, as reported by the paper. “These folks go above and beyond to guarantee the viewers the experience they deserve, and these workers deserve the dignity of a contract that secures their interests in return.”
The Pac-12 is the latest major conference to launch its own network, following the Big Ten. The union reportedly plans to strike on the campuses of some member schools in the Pac-12, including USC, Arizona State, Oregon, and Washington.
