Hollywood’s Teamsters Local 399 has reached a tentative agreement with management’s AMPTP for a new three-year contract covering location managers. Terms of the deal, which runs from August 1, 2015, to July 31, 2018, were not disclosed.
“We were able to negotiate a good contract for our location professionals with improvements that will benefit this group of hardworking individuals,” said Local 399 secretary treasurer Steve Dayan. “Teamsters Local 399 is committed to doing everything it can to protect its members while increasing production in Hollywood.”
“Location managers play a vital role in film and television production by finding locations that establish the overall look of a production,” said AMPTP president Carol Lombardini. “The new three-year agreement covering location managers and assistant location managers will enable the employers to move forward with plans for productions in Los Angeles that will provide employment for this group of employees.”
The deal must be ratified by the union’s bargaining unit.
