Like WGA and SAG-AFTRA, streaming and artificial intelligence are key issues for unions like IATSE and Teamsters 399

On Thursday, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) informed members via the group’s new contract negotiation websites that ahead of talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) over its two big agreements — the Hollywood Basic Agreement and the Area Standards Agreement — a strike authorization vote may be held.

“The Negotiating Committee is not interested in extending this agreement beyond the July 31 expiration,” the guild told members.
