IMPORTANT UPDATES TO TRAINING REIMBURSEMENT
Posted: Apr 18, 2024 16:27 Updated: Apr 18, 2024 16:53

The IATSE 891 2024 Operating Budget was ratified by the Executive Committee on March 25, 2024, following recommendation by the Audit Committee and approval by the Executive Board. This budget took into account a motion from the general membership concerning software reimbursements, the impact of the recent industry strikes on IATSE 891, the subsequent slow start-up in BC production levels, and the continued uncertainty due to current contract negotiations with the IATSE International and the AMPTP.


Consequently this budget observes the following effective April 1, 2024:


  1. The annual cap for reimbursement requests will be $500 for the remainder of 2024.
  2. Members can claim up to $500, including film-related software and/or skills upgrade reimbursement requests.
  3. The $500 cap does not apply to reimbursement allotments for safety courses.
