One Voice, One Goal
Countdown ToThe Convention
 As we approach our 67th Quadrennial Convention, you will nd that this issue o the
 Ofcial Bulletin
contains a substantial amount o Convention-related inormation.
 Answers to many o the most requently asked questions and additionalconvention inormation is contained on pages 6 to 15 o this issue. In ad-dition, all delegates are advised to review Articles Three through Five o the International Constitution in order to better amiliarize themselves withConvention procedures.Preparations or the Convention have been taking place in the GeneralOce or many months, but beore the delegate credential packages can bemailed, all local unions intending to send delegates to the Convention mustulll two key requirements.First, the General Oce must have received all Quarterly Reports, up toand including the 1st Quarter Report or 2013. Although Article Nineteen,Section 7 o the International Constitution allows or that report to be led aslate as April 30th, we cannot complete our calculation o the average mem-bership size between conventions until the 1st Quarter Report is received.Once the calculation is made, the number o delegate votes each local unionis entitled to can be determined and the appropriate number o credentialpackages can be assembled.Second, each local union must have purchased at least twice the numbero 2013 per capita stamps as the numbers reported on the 1st Quarter Reportor 2013. Article Three, Section 5 o the International Constitution requiresthat local unions must purchase per capita stamps or all quarters up to andincluding the quarter that precedes the Convention. Since the 2nd QuarterReport or 2013 is not due until July 30th, the numbers reported on the 1stQuarter Report are doubled and used as an estimate in order to calculategood standing.Once these two requirements have been met, the delegate credentialpackages will be sent to each local union. The package will contain thedelegate’s credential as well as a host o additional inormation, includingairline reservation and hotel inormation. Delegates are encouraged to returntheir credentials to the General Oce as soon as possible. Only when cre-dentials are received in the General Oce, will delegates be able to makeairline reservations on the IA Master Airline Account and be eligible or com-mittee assignments. When making reservations, delegates are reminded that the District Con- ventions (see page 7) precede the International Convention and that in theaternoon o Saturday July 20th there will be a series o education sessionsavailable or all delegates as well as the return o our Plenary Session onSunday, July 21st (see page 11).
 While it seems we’re on an economic roller coaster, we have ush-ered in what we hope will be a long period o labor stability in the en-tertainment industry. Beore some o our major negotiations in 2009,our health plans were acing grave challenges and our own economicorecast was cloudy. We are making huge strides in organizing, in the areas o reality television, audio visual work, touring production, broadcast and tradeshow. We have also succeeded in getting IA con-tracts at stage venues in the United States and Canada where we haveought long periods o time to achieve.
Things are better than they have been in the past several years, but thisis not a time or complacency. We are up against an anti-labor majority inthe U.S. House o Representatives. We continue to ace State and Provinciallegislatures looking to hobble labor in both the public and private sectors.Right Wing Canadian politicians are supporting rightening national “right to work” legislation. It is clear that labor’s opposition continues to look or any excuse to deprive working amilies o hard-won benets and going so aras to wipe out pension plans. We must remain united and strong, and neverlet this happen.The only way we can help ourselves is to help each other. More thanever now, we need to stand together to demonstrate the value o laborunions, the strength in our numbers, and the benets that labor can oer to working amilies in our industry and every other industry, both public andprivate in the U.S. and Canada. We know that without unions, workers are not protected rom corporategreed, or rom those employers that shirk the moral responsibility o look-ing ater their workorce. Even so, the voices o labor’s opposition are shrill.But ours are stronger, and we won’t budge. So we have to make certain thatthose strong voices are heard, that we are united and determined, and thateven when the roller coaster takes its dips, we can ride it out with strengthand resolve. As we head into our 67th Quadrennial Convention this year, it’s a goodtime to remember what our union has done or us. For decades we haveought hard to achieve better working conditions, kept pace with the dra-matically escalating costs o health care, and held onto our pensions. As ourbrother and sister members o unions in other industries have suered, wein the entertainment industry have been ortunate so ar that we have beenable to protect our members, grow and increase strength. We will demonstrate our unity at the convention in July, and our voices will be one voice, our goals one goal: to protect the working lives o ourmembers through whatever challenges we ace – together!
