It is required in the Constitution of IATSE Local 488 that all Members report ALL of your work to your Business Agent.
Reporting your work helps the BAs know what work is happening in our area. Notifying them of a commercial, film or tv show coming to town is the first step to more union work and will help ensure you collect valuable health, pension & retirement benefits and ensure safe and fair working conditions.
Use the handy Report Your Work form found here or call your business agent directly.
