 As part of our continuing efforts to increase the level of communi-cation between the International and our members as well as meet thecommitment to reduce our negative effects on the environment, weare launching a new Email initiative for members of the IATSE.
The Member Email Initiative will serve two major purposes. First, it willsatisfy the desire from that portion of our membership that is interested inreducing the amount of paper mail they receive. The new system will allowus to send various publications of the International such as the Official Bul-letin and the Hollywood Organizer electronically instead of mailing a paper version. The second benefit will be the ability of the International to commu-nicate with our membership in a more timely and efficient manner than weare presently able to do using traditional postal services.Registering for this new initiative is a very simple process. On the left sideof the International’s Web site Home Page there is a new link called “EmailSubscriptions”. Once you click on that link you will be led through a simpleregistration process that requires your name, Email address, local union num-ber as well as your year of birth. This limited amount of information isrequired in order for the system to confirm that you are a member and con-tained in the International’s database. You will then be asked to create a pass- word and the registration is complete. You can now proceed to manage yourEmail subscription settings and select which communications you want toreceive electronically. Selections can be altered at any time by simply going tothe International’s Web site and clicking on “Email Subscriptions”. As an alternative to individual members registering we will also berequesting local unions to provide the International with the Email addressesof their members. Members that have not already registered individually willreceive an Email from the International advising them that their local unionhas provided the contact information and should they wish to participate they can click a link in the message that will take them through the same registra-tion process that is available to individual members. Whether you register as an individual or complete the registrationprocess after your local union has provided your Email address, no mem-bers will be registered for Email communication without their consent. If  you do nothing you will continue to receive all communication and publica-tions in paper form. When combined with the previously launched Online Membership Data-base System that is used by our local unions, this new Member Email Initia-tive is yet another step in the continued modernization of communicationbetween the International, our local unions and our members. I encourage you to register today.

Brothers and Sisters, I must now call your attention to the impor-tance of political action and involvement, both of which are critical to help ensure that our labor-supportive candidates are elected topublic office. In 2008 we celebrated victory when President Obama  was elected. To us, this meant we were about to realize a friendlier  White House, and with Democratic majorities in the House and Sen-ate, we would have a Congress that was not opposed to the interestsof working families and organized labor.
 American history has shown that every President has faced tremendouschallenges. President Obama is no different. In fact, his challenges may beeven greater than those faced by many other Presidents, including fightingtwo wars, inheriting an economy plagued by high unemployment andnational deficit, a skittish electorate, and ever-increasing partisanship. Tobe sure, over the past couple of years, we have experienced extremely dif-ficult times. But, while we have not yet seen all the fruits of our efforts, thecurrent Administration is working harder for working men and women of this country than we have seen in a long time. Moreover, the Administra-tion has accomplished a great deal in a highly politicized and partisan envi-ronment. Health Care Reform has been enacted and in time will help thesystem work better for everyone; the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signedlast year which provides recourse for workers in cases of pay discrimina-tion. Banking/Financial reform legislation (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reformand Consumer Protection Act) to protect consumers from high-handedbanking policies and the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act, arejust a few of the Bills that will be of direct benefit to IA members. PresidentObama’s Supreme Court appointees – Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagen -are more labor-friendly.The President’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board— Members Craig Becker and Mark Pearce—have resulted in a Board that isoperating at full capacity for the first time in two years. The Board mem-bers have acted quickly to reduce the backlog of cases that they were met with upon their arrival in Washington. We are hopeful that this Board willengage in rulemaking to further effectuate the National Labor Relations Actand which will result in a more level playing field between labor and man-agement. This is the first ray of hope labor has had in more than ten years.The rulemaking that has been undertaken by Secretary of Labor HildaSolis and her staff at the United States Department of Labor has benefited
