Under MEMBER RESOURCES, there is now a new tab called CLASSIFIED ADS. The only category so far is SUPER BOWL HOUSING.
For a short time this will be a private area, until we are totally comfortable with how it works.
The Ordway will be sending out an email to the Local 13 members who are currently active (meaning they have worked in the past six months) in their current payroll system, ADP, but they don't have emails for everyone and it's possible that many of the emails they have are not valid.
Below is a link for employment at the Minneapolis Armory, I would like to encourage every stagehand to fill out the application. I hear their first concert is December 15. We need everyone to fill this out.
Super Bowl background checks have begun and should be completed as soon as possible.
There is information on how to register with Local 13 if you are an out of state worker, we'll update what's happening at various venues, and how to obtain your required credentials, etc.
Are you passing up health insurance benefits because you are not reading your mail?
Did you know that our contracts typically have an employer contribution towards health care?
You should be receiving a letter every quarter explaining the amount of funds accumulated in your personal account and your options for using it. If you see any mail that says IATSE National Benefit Funds, READ IT!!
Most workers know they are required to work an increasing number of days (for an increasing number of years) to advance from a given letter list to the next higher list. (This helps us refer our more experienced people first.) But did you know they must also test out?
We have the largest pool of skilled AV Professionals, Live Event Techs, Audio Engineers, Lighting Designers, Riggers, Camera Operators, Projectionists, Moving Light Programmers, Scenic Carpenters, Wardrobe, and Stagehands of all kinds in the Twin Cities.
We currently refer from a list of over 1600 active workers.
