Welcome International Alliance of Theatrical Stagehands Local 74
I.A.T.S.E. Local 74 of Southern Connecticut is thrilled to celebrate it's 120th Anniversary. We provide technically trained men and women in all areas of production including rigging, carpentry, lighting, sound, props, wardrobe, hair and makeup. You may not see us in the dark, but we are there spotlighting your artist, behind the video camera at your corporate meeting, or providing audio at your next basketball game. We are able to help you with all aspects of your production including payroll and ever changing labor needs.
We have been unable to return to work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are standing at the ready to do our part when called upon to transition dormant live-event venues into field hospitals, mass vaccination sites, and/or testing sites to help in the fight against COVID-19 throughout Southern Connecticut. Now we have a unique opportunity not only to help beat this virus and save lives in this time of crisis, but also to get our skilled technicians back to work and create jobs in our community.

AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT
The American Rescue Plan Act would provide relief to entertainment workers who remain out of work through no fault of their own and economic support until a safe return to work is possible, while also beginning to set the stage for the recovery of our industry.
This historic rescue package goes beyond partisan politics, as it provides benefits and programs entertainment workers’ families need:
- Increases the federal weekly unemployment supplement to $400 and extends the COVID-19 unemployment programs through the end of August
- Provides an 85% subsidy of COBRA premiums through the end of September, so that members who have not yet returned to work can remain on multiemployer health plans
- Provides direct payments of $1,400 for those making less than $75,000/yr, based on 2019 or 2020 taxes (depending on whether you’ve filed 2020 taxes)
- Appropriates $135 million in emergency supplemental funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and an additional $1.25 billion for the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program (Save Our Stages)
It’s been almost a year since IATSE members and allies sent over 100,000 letters to Congress to ensure entertainment workers were included in the CARES Act. When we act together, we make our voices heard loud and clear by Congress.
