'Daily Show' Employees Ratify IATSE Deal
The contract focuses on health and retirement benefits.
Technical employees of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart have unanimously ratified their first collective bargaining agreement, IATSE announced Wednesday. The contract resulted from negotiations between IATSE and the show’s producers, who earlier had voluntary recognized the union.
Voluntary recognition is the norm in motion pictures and scripted television, but is often not the case in unscripted fare.
The bargaining unit consists of camera operators, video technicians, audio technicians, graphic/chyron (character generator) operators, technical directors, audio assistants, video assistants, videotape/EVS operators, utility technicians, teleprompter operators, costume designers/stylists and makeup/hair stylists.
The contract provides health and retirement benefits as well as “the continued maintenance of all existing conditions,” the union said.
