Peace Breaks Out

During the course of Negotiations with the IATSE (IA), AICP and the IA leadership discussed the ongoing disputes between AICP Members and the IA local 871—which have led to 49 NLRB charges and 42 grievances filed by the IA and the local against AICP Member Companies.  Two of these grievances have been in arbitration for over two years.

Understanding that peace is always better than war, AICP agreed to address certain employment issues, and the IATSE and the Local agreed to drop all remaining charges, grievances and arbitrations (AICP and the IA agreed to drop mutual NLRB Charges late last year). In addition, the parties agreed to remove the sideletter which was the root of these disputes (“Sideletter D”).

For the 49 companies affected, who all stood strong in their convictions regarding their compliance of the sideletter, “this is a fantastic outcome” (as simply stated by AICP Chairman Rich Carter)—ending current and future conflicts over this contract interpretation.  Bravo to the AICP Legal and Labor teams!
