The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees will protest Friday morning.
The union believes it is UNFAIR for the employer to misclassify their stage employees by paying them as independent contractors.
As an independent contractor you:
- Do not have Worker's Compensation if you are hurt at work.
- Do not have Unemployment Insurance when work is not available.
- Will likely not be paid time and a half pay after eight hours of work.
- Will likely not be paid double time for work between midnight and 8AM.
- But even then, you will have to pay the employers percentage of Social Security.
These are just a few of the terms and conditions negotiated for decades between the I.A.T.S.E. and every major venue in the Twin Cities.
I.A.T.S.E Local 13 has stood to protect working conditions since 1894.
Workers in this venue, we invite you to stand with us and not go back to work until your employer pays you a fair wage, with benefits and fair working conditions.
You have rights and deserve these compensations.
You do not have to work for a penny less than we do.
