Mid-Summer Virtual General Executive Board Meeting


 

Both President Scott and I participated/represented Local 769 at the IATSE Mid-Summer GEB sessions this past Tuesday/Wednesday. It was originally scheduled to be held in Seattle this week but was changed to a virtual structure due to our current pandemic situation. It was an intense, detailed and at times highly charged format  President Loeb called to order and requested updates/reports from several key divisions of our IA. The following committees gave presentations focusing primarily on the challenges along with IA responses associated with the COVID-19 situation. The overall theme was focused on the current political climate issues as well as safe back to work plan for all in our alliance.
