Crew Nation is making another round of grants available, as they did in April, this time for anyone who was affected by the layoffs in July, August and September. One of the conditions of this one is that you did not get any money from the previous round.
Charlie Ryan, our Business Agent, has posted a document on this website, download link here-
and will be official documentation of the shows that have been cancelled in all our venues. You may also use our website calendar as supporting documentation, as all of the cancelled and postponed events from the last several months are still listed on it. Give them the link to it, let them see:
First let me say WOW! I’m so honored and thankful for our members and officers that participated in our Red Alert Restart Rally. We walked those streets with pride and dignity. We showed everyone that we truly care about what we do in the entertainment world…Our world.
We came together because of something terrible that’s devastated our industry and hurt us all. On September 1st when I saw everyone standing together supporting each other, I have never been so proud of our union as I was that day. It’s given me a tremendous amount of hope and shown me how how strong we are together. My motto has always been “In Union there is STRENGTH” and that day proved it 100%. Thank you again to everyone for caring and being part of our proud IATSE Local 23 history.
