Just as any given crew is stronger when all their members stand united, our entire profession is stronger when more post-production work is performed under union contracts. The Editors Guild has an imperative to organize a greater share of post-production work performed in the United States, especially in those sectors of the industry -- e.g., post facilities, digital labs, trailer houses, unscripted television, commercial editing -- that now remain largely non-union.
Here are a few of the ways in which individual members and prospective members can help to secure more union work:
Share the information on this website and share our Post, Proud video with your network of colleagues, especially those who often work non-union jobs;
If you have experience working union jobs, explain to colleagues who only work non-union the advantages of union employment;
Participate in conversations on social media and other forums for post-production employees; and
When you are working a non-union job, contact a Guild organizer to speak confidentially about your employer.
