From our Business Representative, Tom Pusateri ...



Chicago Entertainment Industry Labor Council





THANK YOU! I am sincerely humbled, honored and proud to have achieved two important appointments on behalf of IATSE 769 in recent days. In addition to being successfully nominated to serve for a second term as your Business Representative I was also nominated and unanimously voted in last week to serve as Secretary Treasurer for the CEILC. The Council has had several recent sessions focusing on collaborating through the ongoing pandemic situation as well as its impact on our various organizations and the future outlook for our local industry. I respectfully express my gratitude to our members of 769 as well as the current delegates in the CEILC for the support and confidence shown as we further navigate forward through these exceptionally trying times. For those members not familiar with the mission of the CEILC, below is a summary from their Constitution and By-Laws as well as a list of currently participating organizations:
