Historical Note

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) was founded in 1893. In 1995, IATSE adopted the name, The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, Its Territories, and Canada, to more accurately reflect the scope of the union's activities within the entertainment industry. IATSE members are involved with every phase of production in all aspects of the entertainment industry. The union's efforts have allowed it to achieve some of the best wages and working conditions among skilled craftspeople. In recent years, the IATSE has been a forerunner in organizing workers in new technology-based crafts, such as computer-generated imagery and the digital download of films.

Local 927 absorbed Local 225 in 1996.
