The International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees represents a wide variety of trades and crafts in the entertainment industry with a membership as wide and varied. Inspired by a growing push to engage young union members across North America, the IATSE Young Workers was formed January 2012 to identify young leaders and give our young union members a greater understanding of the responsibilities of leadership.
Appointed by President Loeb and recruited through the membership, the Young Workers Committee is the core group of members behind the Young Workers initiatives, including the first-ever Young Worker Conferences in fall 2012. The Conferences had a rigorous education schedule aimed at empowering young leaders in their local unions and on the jobsite or workplace.
The IATSE YWC will work with this mission and three goals always in mind:
1. Be part of something bigger.
2. Teach practical leadership skills.
3. Identify young leaders.
