Delegate denied service – IATSE speaks out!

 

IATSE International President Loeb had this to say at Convention this morning (Tuesday, 18 July 2017):

"I understand that a delegate of this convention was denied service at Tony's Pizza located on South Ocean Drive this past weekend apparently for discriminatory reasons – that being the color of her skin.

Any type of discrimination is despicable behavior that has no place in society, will not be tolerated by the IATSE and is, in fact, condemned by the IATSE.  I applaud the efforts of the delegates ...that took steps to communicate their condemnation yesterday.

I encourage all delegates and their respective family members attending this convention to take this into consideration when making decisions on where they will eat during convention week."
