A tentative agreement has been reached between the AMPTP and Local 399 regarding the “Black Book” Agreement!
We achieved a good contract with no give-backs. The contract is being recommended by all of the Members of the Drivers Steering Committee that were present for negotiations.
Secretary-Treasurer Steve Dayan said, “We were able to achieve good contracts for all of our covered members while at the same time keeping Hollywood working. Under this agreement, we are able to ensure stability for the best work force on the planet.”
We will be hosting an informational meeting on June 20th at 8AM at Pickwick Gardens ( RSVP HERE) to discuss the points of the tentative agreement. Mail-out ballots will be sent to all “Black Book” covered Members. If you are not signed up on our email list please do so here to be the first to know when the meeting is announced: Email Sign Up.
