63 Signatures Goal: 300

We the undersigned in a non-adversarial manner and demeanor wish it be known to President Ford and the Executive board of IATSE Local 52 Motion Picture Studio Mechanics of our desire for the board to seek and hire negotiators to represent the Local in the next round of Major’s contract negotiations in 2015.

We the undersigned wish to convey this petition to the President and Executive Board with the utmost respect for the work that has been done on behalf of the membership past and present. We recognize that the employers have large financial resources and hire the very best they possibly can to represent their interests at these negotiations and we the undersigned request that the President and Executive board conduct a search and ultimately employ highly trained persons that will represent the Local’s interests in such said negotiations.

Thank you for your time and hearing our concern

    Representation with a proven track record please. I'm tired of not adjusted for inflation contracts. Term limited. Let our officers work with these great deals we've been getting.

    we deserve the best representation possible for all contract negotiations. I am for the first year ever paying over 3000 for health benefits for my family. Negotiations in the past had us pass on raises to help fund our health insurance coverage. Do we wish we had done that differently now!

    You are placing too much importance on the lawyers. The employers send their labor relations people to the negotiations, some are lawyers, some are not. Our attorneys are as good, if not better than any of theirs. We actually only negotiate with a very small group of them. True negotiations are just that, negotiation. Trends are set through the employers bargaining with the other Unions in the industry, SAG, Directors Guild, Writers Guild etc.. Employers won't break whatever pattern emerges without getting something significant in return. We don't have that much to offer. If we are looking for significant changes in the contract in my opinion you won't get them without a strike. A strike requires a 2/3 vote of the membership ( roughly 2,400 votes) and permission from the International, so if that's the way a 2/3 majority wants to go start saving your money and start a strike petition instead.

    Nothing against the membership or our elected leaders, but we need guys at the table that do this for a living.
