“In the Telling” is back from summer break in this special Labor Day episode with my guests from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, a union for backstage theatre workers. I spoke with Hope Bird and Allison Smartt who met with me over zoom in the social distancing of 2020 to talk with me about IATSE, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. We discuss the what’s, why’s, and how’s of the union and its local 99 chapter as well as the Red Alert Movement by workers in live event industries.
Email Allison Smartt if your venue or organization would like more information about working with Local 99 firstname.lastname@example.org
