Deadline: Sen. Elizabeth Warren Stands With IATSE Members “All The Way In This Fight” For A Fair Contract

?Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in a video released today that she stands “shoulder-to-shoulder” with IATSE members as they vote for a strike authorization, and that she is with them “all the way in this fight.”

“I’m glad to stand with @IATSE in their fight for a fair contract,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in an accompanying tweet (see it below). “Giant film and entertainment companies make billions of dollars in profits each year and the least they can do is ensure their workers have livable wages and reasonable work hours.”

Warren, who was one of more than 100 Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives to sign off on a letter Thursday urging the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers to negotiate a fair deal with the union, told viewers of her video that “The next time you watch a movie or a TV show, think about all the people who you never see on screen, but who had to put in the hard labor to bring that show to you.”
