Film crew union narrowly approves contract with producers
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Film industry crew members have narrowly voted to approve a pair of contracts with Hollywood producers after a standoff that came within days of a strike that would have halted productions across the U.S., union leaders said Monday. The agreements passed 56% to 44% among delegates from the 36 local unions of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees in the voting system that resembles the U.S. Electoral College. But in the popular vote, 50.3% said yes and 49.7% no to the two contracts combined of the 45,000 members who cast a ballot in voting held from Friday through Sunday.
Trade union organizations are primarily asking for the background of the base salary of employees of around 15%, as well as the regularization of the status of certain temporary workers and service providers. For the time being, no agreement has been found on these points of claim.
To avoid any paralysis and allow users to access their accounts, the Ministry of Labor in charge of social dialogue has tried, without success, a conciliation at a meeting held in the evening of Monday with the unions.
A banks' strike at the end of the month is the worst effect in the opinion and for households because a large part of employees and officials affect their wages around the 25th of each month. Companies and individuals will have to adapt to carry out their operations and deal with everyday spending.
The impact of this strike will be more limited for Malians workingor for people still in the country that do not have a bank account and who do not have access to basic financial services .
