Others (including Publicity, Wranglers (Animal), Catering, Marine)
Some of the highlights of our union are:
- non-seniority crewing;
- producers and department keys hire their choice of technicians depending on the dynamics of each production team;
- full members and permittee members are hired based on their skills and ability rather than their position on a seniority list.
This style of crewing is attractive for qualified technicians who would like to achieve higher position and pay rates.
