IATSE Goes Green
New Email Subscription Program

My message in the previous issue of the Official Bulletin focused on our new Member Email initiative which was successfully launched at the beginning of October. Based on that message, many of you took thetime to go to the International’s Web site (www.iatse-intl.org) and regis-teredindividually.
In addition to the individual registration option, we also solicited the assis-tance of our local unions by asking them to supply us with the Email address-es of their members in order that we could send a registration message tothem. Thus far, thirty-five local unions have provided us with the requestedinformation (see page 9 for a complete listing) and a registration Email mes-sage from the International has gone out to over 15,000 members. Thousandsof our members have now completed the brief verification process and havebeen added to our general correspondence electronic distribution list. After the initial registration, many members also took the next step andlogged into their newly created account to manage their electronic distributionprofile. These members are now registered to receive various Internationalpublications, including the Official Bulletin, in electronic form. For them, thismay represent the first issue of the Official Bulletin that they are reading on acomputer screen or some other mobile device. Congratulations and welcometo our newest form of distribution.Some of you may have registered to receive an electronic copy and aresurprised that you also received a paper copy. This has to do with timing andthe requirement for us to provide our address labels a few weeks prior to youreceiving the Official Bulletin in the mail. If your registration for electronic dis-tribution occurred after that time then this will be the last paper version youreceive. If any member would like to see an electronic version of the OfficialBulletin before registering, go to the International’s Web site and click on thelink in the bottom right.In addition to the Member Email initiative, almost 150 local unions are nowusing the International’s Web-enabled Online Membership Database System.This program makes it possible for local union Secretaries and Treasurers tochange much of their communication with the General Office from a paperenvironment to that of an online one. Locals are able to file Quarterly Reports,update member information and place orders for per capita stamps and sup-plies online over a secure network connection. If you are an Officer of a localunion that is not presently registered for this system and would like to beginusing it, please contact the General Office to get started.To those that are participating in our initiatives to be more efficient andenvironmentally friendly, I thank you, and if you have been considering sign-ing up I encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

Fourth Quarter 2010 54 Official Bulletin

Brothers and Sisters, last month we saw less than positive resultson Election Day. But we must move forward and begin the fight all over again – for working families, for jobs, for building the middleclass, for protecting retirement security and so much more. Acrossthe nation, 64 percent of union members voted for union-endorsed candidates, but for millions of union families who voted in themidterm elections, and for the hundreds of thousands of union vol- unteers who spent hours working for working family candidates,the election results were disappointing.
The American people expressed their anger at everyone in Washingtonregardless of which side of the aisle they sat on, and for good reason. Thepain of the economic collapse that has been paid for with jobs, homesand sometimes hope, was too much to bear and the election resultsdemonstrated the anger and a cry for help. But more important than theanger expressed, were feelings of anxiety.Worry about the future of employment, stable retirements and the chance for children and genera-tions to come to enjoy the same shared prosperity of their parents andgrandparents. It was about the economy and jobs and a mandate to fix theeconomy and create jobs.The midterm elections give pause to reflect on the shared obligationamong people, and between markets and government to create a prosper-ous and forward-looking society. I am proud and grateful to all our IATSEmembers and local unions that knew the importance of the elections andfelt a sense of obligation to get out and walk precincts, participate inphone banking, leafleting and so much more. I have received reports fromDistrict Secretaries and local unions all over the country and those reportsindicate that the efforts our members put forth to get out the vote leadingup to November 2nd were outstanding. Regardless of the outcome, fromFlorida to California and in other key states like Ohio, New York, Pennsyl- vania, Nevada and Colorado, IATSE members were out in full support of labor-friendly candidates. We must now be watchful over how the coming power-shift in Con-gress, especially in the House, will affect those issues closest to us, particu-larly in the area of piracy and our efforts to curb the theft of intellectualproperty. The Obama administration has been sympathetic to our cause,but committee leaderships in Congress will change and it is our responsi-
Where Do WeGo From Here?

The 2011 Supplies have been mailed tothose local unions that have submittedtheir 3rd Quarter Report for 2010 and pur-chased the appropriate number of percapita stamps.The number of per capita stamps thatmust be purchased is based on the numberof members reported on the 1st and 2ndQuarterly Reports plus two times the num-ber of members reported on the 3rd Quar-ter Report (to allow for an estimate of thenumbers that will be reported on the 4thQuarter Report). When the 4th QuarterReport is submitted in January 2011, anadjustment to balance the local’s accountis made if necessary.
