In production, it seems that there are no two compartments more connected than hair and makeup. Make-up artists and hairdressers are part of the same local IATSE union – 706. They share the same work trailer, stay on set for the same hours and often work on the same actor at the same time. In the early hours of the morning, after weeks of negotiations, iATSE and AMPTP reached the best basic agreement in decades. It has been challenged on many levels, but members of the sign. In the end, 13 West Coast IATSE Locals voted verbally in favour of the agreement, and we couldn`t (but that`s their prerogative). So that is a very good thing for the vast majority of those who approved the treaty. Your Local was represented by a team of professionals, make-up artists and hairdressers, democratically elected at the General Assembly of Members, who worked for months on proposals that members best represent on the broad spectrum with other AI members (camera, handle, electricity, clients, art directors, set sets, etc.). It wasn`t an easy process, but with Tommy, Randy and Sue, Darrell Redleaf Fielder`s (h), John Goodwin (mu), Daniel Curet (h) and Karen Westerfield (mu) learned the processes and protocols needed to conduct successful negotiations. We congratulate them for closing the time necessary for education and participation, speaking on behalf of the members and doing an excellent job.
These were the people who were really in the room, where no one was cheering or threatening a strike vote. Qualification for membership by Off Roster Hire Ehrlich, your 2018 Basic Agreement Negotiations Committee Hairstylist X explained that on advertisements, although there should be a hair department head, hair lists are rather paid as makeup assistants, a practice specifically prohibited since hairdressers and makeup artists, as two separate branches of the union, cannot be assistants to the other. If an ad doesn`t require a lot of hairstyle, the make-up artist or a real make-up assistant intervenes to do the job, which is also contrary to union rules, because makeup artists are not allowed to work on hair. . The crew members are delighted with what they are doing and want equal pay for their work. “We`re not businessmen,” says hairdresser Y. “We are artists who love our work.” When Cabral-Ebert was asked for other ways for members to report complaints that would protect their identity, she noted: “There are other methods; I do not feel free to discuss it. We have contract negotiations. She also suggests that while the status of the favorite nations for hair and makeup crews is official, “it`s a matter for the producers who control the situation.” Candidacy for Roster`s status for film, television or advertising: However, in an industry where contract negotiations must last for months and where every penny must be justified, hairstyliste department heads earn nearly $650 less per week than their colleagues in the makeup department, in accordance with the Showbiz Labor Guide`s IATSE Basic West Coast Agreement. And while the application of “beneficial nations” practices often mitigates inequalities, the contractual reality remains. . The union has a complaint procedure for contracting productions that do not comply with their contracts. But hairdressers say all the complaints they make to the union would only fire them and blacklist them through other ads – and many stylists work almost exclusively in the sector.
“The union says, “We don`t know, unless you report it,” and then you report it and the [production] knows, that you reported it because someone else? request hairstylist X.
