STAND WITH YOUR FELLOW TECHNICIANS:
Encore Vegas is united for equal treatment
We work hard to ensure that our clients receive the highest-quality results. Meanwhile, employment with Encore is unpredictable and inconsistent with no accountability to us. Encore exploits us by moving us around like union bounce employees without giving us the wages and benefits. All of this despite the fact that we are the face of Encore to their clients.
But we can change that.
In 2017, Philadelphia A/V techs joined together to demand better working conditions, including considerable pay raises and consistent scheduling. They bargained and ratified their first contract, and others have followed their leadership. Their powerful victory inspired technicians in Seattle and Toronto to join IATSE —and momentum in other cities is building. These Encore techs organized to form a union because they knew they deserved better — and we do, too. It’s our time here in Las Vegas.
BY JOINING TOGETHER, ENCORE TECHNICIANS CAN BARGAIN FOR:
Encore workers deserve to know that our jobs are secure. IATSE Local 720 can make sure we are never wrongfully terminated, and represent us in any grievance process. In the event of layoffs, the union will fight so that you have proper notice with compensation. IATSE Local 720 also works with a variety of organizations to provide financial assistance and other resources to union members during times of hardship. IATSE 720 even started its own food bank to distribute thousands of meals each month to the members and the community.
