As a Union member you have certain rights and obligations. You are always welcome to ask questions of your representatives and officers or to stop by the Union office during business hours. We hope you have a fulfilling experience in your work and become informed and involved in your Union.

Why We Have Unions

"According to the Economic Policy Institute, on average, a worker covered by a union contract earns 13.2% more in wages than a peer with similar education, occupation, and experience in a nonunionized workplace in the same sector." Source:

"Unions engage in 'Collective bargaining'. Collective bargaining is how working people gain a voice at work and the power to shape their working lives.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, Unions:

  • Give workers a voice in policy debates
  • Reduce inequality and are essential for low- and middle-wage workers' ability to obtain a fair share of economic growth
  • Improve the health and safety practices of workplaces
  • Support strong families with better benefits and due process and are good for workers' retirement security"

Hollywood Pantages Theatre Ushers Ratify First Local B-192 Contract

Urge the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to Vote on $25 Living Wage Ordinance 

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors have read an ordinance that would result in a minimum of $25/hour pay for theme park workers but have yet to vote on the ordinance. It is imperative and urgent that we contact our supervisors to make the vote happen! We urge you to email a letter to your supervisor to help raise the wages of theme park and hotel workers by voting on the ordinance. Universal Studios makes huge profits on the backs of workers who can't afford to make ends meet and struggle with the cost of housing in particular. Too many of our members confront financial, food, and housing insecurities every day!

Use the flyer below to contact the supervisor in your district to urge them to vote in favor of the motion. 

LinkedIn Learning 

Local B-192 is continuing to provide a unique opportunity to participate in the IATSE Education and Training Department's courses, which upgraded to LinkedIn Learning in 2019. You can choose from a variety of options, including those listed on the site provided, and it's free of charge for members! For more information, contact our Union office or refer to the website:
