Y-8 February 27, 1960 – January 19, 2017 RICHARD PORTMAN Y-1 April 22, 1934 – January 28, 2017 Job reporting helps us organize, and organizing creates more union jobs with the potential for: • More opportunities to earn healthcare hours. • More contributions made to fund our health plan. • Higher monthly retirement pension. • Bigger IAP (Individual Account Plan) retirement cash payout. • Better work conditions. • A safer workplace. By adding your job information to our database, we get a more accurate picture of the workplace. We cross-reference member-submitted information with the contracts we have on file and with data provided by the IA. This helps us resolve problems you may have at work. It strengthens our position when dealing with Producers, and it provides cru- cially important information when the time comes to orga- nize. The Local 695 Constitution & Bylaws require that all members report all jobs: IA shows and non-IA shows, long- term assignments and day-calls, theatrical and TV produc- tions, sports, commercials, music videos … everything.
