COVID-19 Relief Legislation for Entertainment Workers

I hope this finds you and your families in continued good health. As I said following the passage of the CARES Act last month, our fight is not over on federal COVID-19 relief legislation.

Congress has begun to pursue additional legislation in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The entertainment industry will continue to be disproportionately impacted by this health crisis and we need to ensure that that subsequent COVID-19 relief legislation puts workers first.

Below is a call to action that much of the IATSE U.S. membership will receive this afternoon. We have launched a new email campaign for IATSE members to contact their Members of Congress. Our previous campaign facilitated over 100,000 emails to Congress and these subsequent priorities are every bit as vital as what we collectively won in the CARES Act. We must amplify our voices to that threshold once more.

I ask you to please highlight the below email with your local membership and urge them to tell Congress to include the top priorities of entertainment workers in any subsequent legislation. You may also use this link to the email campaign in your own personalized outreach:
