The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees voted to ratify new film and TV contracts after months of negotiations. The results were announced yesterday, and it establishes three year contracts for the union's over 60,000 impacted members.  Yesterday, Georgia's Republican-led state House approved the bill that would redraw state assembly maps, and the state Senate voted it through last Friday, too. After Governor Brian Kemp signs off on this, the new districts will be legalized. The new maps don't add any majority-minority districts to the Senate, and they also impede on the power of some of the current legislators of color.  And in headlines: Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy announced he won't seek re-election next year, Howard University students ended their protest against horrific housing conditions, and Austria may have passed Europe's most restrictive mandate for the unvaccinated.

Since this summer, the entertainment industry has been embroiled in a labor dispute over working conditions. The studios and the workers' union, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employee, reached a détente in mid-October, averting a strike that would have brought most production across the country to a halt. Almost a week after that strike was averted, the conversation about conditions on-set was compounded by a fatal accident involving a functioning firearm used as a prop on the set of the film "Rust." Variety reporter Gene Maddaus joins to talk about working conditions in the entertainment industry.

With strikes in a wide variety of private sectors popping up all across the country — Kelloggs, Kaiser Permanente, coal miners in Alabama, John Deere, The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), Taxi Drivers on hunger strike in NY, and more — the United States might be on the verge of a strike wave, and we've brought on the perfect guest to explain exactly what's going on. Alex Press is a staff writer at Jacobin Magazine, host of the Primer podcast, and author most recently of the Jacobin articles, “US Workers Are in a Militant Mood” and “Halyna Hutchins's Death on the Set of Rust Was “Not a Freak Accident.” The Conversation will bring you up to date on all of the labor activity currently underway, but will also zoom out to explore the state of the labor movement more broadly, taking a deep dive on how the pandemic has transformed the movement, unpacking what's really behind the so-called “labor shortage,” and getting to the root of why workers are starting to stand up to bosses in a way that we haven't seen for quite some time.

The leadership of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees announced a tentative agreement for a new contract between the TV and film crew members it represents, and Hollywood producers. In the short term, this deal prevents a strike that would have begun today.  In February 2020, Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man, was on a run in Brunswick, GA, when three white men chased him down in pickup trucks and fired a shotgun at him three times, killing him. The trial for the men accused of killing Arbery begins today, almost 19 months after he was killed.

It's Casual Friday with a very special guest! Sam and Emma host Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota's 5th District, whose recent book, This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman, is out in paperback now! Representative Omar, Sam, and Emma take on a variety of issues central to the progressive cause as the Biden administration has begun to falter. They begin with key issues on immigration and refugees, as Ilhan Omar touches on the shameful continuation of Trump policies under Biden, particularly exploring the treatments of Afghan and Haitian refugees and the Biden administration's reliance on Title 42, taking on also why he has failed to stick to this campaign promise. Next, they move to the topic of student debt relief, as Congresswoman Omar dives into the mysterious missing memo that stands as the only thing preventing Biden from putting pen to paper with an executive order, and what could be behind the delay, before they jump to the topic of the reconciliation platform and how debt relief may or may not fit in. She, Emma, and Sam also dive into the discussion around reconciliation spending, why a shorter span on funding is easily okay by progressives if Sinema and Manchin will just clarify what they would like, and explore the developing role of the progressive caucus. They also touch on the legitimate ideas on both sides of the Holocaust, as per Texas's new education requirements that an "opposing" view be taught regarding the once in a century atrocity. And in the second half, Sam and Emma are joined by members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) union David McMahon (Local 52) and Fae Weichsel (Local 600) to discuss the recent developments regarding their strike authorization. Then Sam and Emma are joined by comedian Ben Gleib to discuss his recent dust up with Charlie Kirk! They run through the highlights of his very calm discussion with Charlie Kirk, including Kirk's anger and confusion regarding human anatomy, American citizenship, and what his role is within the right. Sam and Emma also touch on talking horses and John Deere, taking on the solidarity we're seeing all across the nation with this string of labor strikes, and Lindsey Graham doing some Republican-talking-point MadLibs on the wealthy Brazilian terrorists coming into our country, plus your IMs!

In what has become a ping-ponging of women's Constitutionally protected right to an abortion, the conservative 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Texas law banning almost all abortions. The decision puts the case on a direct pathway back to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema say they are ready to tank Biden's Build Back Better plan on the grounds that it's too hard on fossil fuel corporations; that it expands Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing coverage; that it provides for tuition-free community college; and, generally, that everything isn't means tested. At least that's what Manchin laid out. Sinema seems just pissed that HER piece of legislation, the bi-partisan fossil fuel infrastructure bill, is not getting voted on first.   10,000 UAW workers went on strike against John Deere. The strike comes after workers rejected a tentative agreement by about 90% on Sunday. Workers say the two-tier employee system which would hurt newly hired workers was a non-starter. Now that's some solidarity for ya.  60,000 IATSE, International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, workers will begin a strike on Monday if no significant agreement is reached. 98% of IATSE members voted in favor of a strike over issues of an increased minimum wage, humane working hours, and fair pay for work on streaming programming.  These job actions join the 1,400 workers at Kellogg's plants who went on strike on October 5 and close to 30,000 workers at Kaiser Permanente in California and Oregon have overwhelmingly passed their strike authorization.  #Striketober anyone? Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro launched his 2022 gubernatorial campaign in Pittsburgh and Montgomery County this week.  The Attorney General has essentially clearled the field of any challengers by gaining the endorsements of progressives and moderate Democrats throughout the Commonwealth. Ashley Ehasz becomes the first Democrat to throw their hat in the ring to try to unseat Brian Fitzpatrick in the PA01. Ehasz is an army vet who's campaign launch video focused on her anger that the American Dream is out of reach for so many. Her campaign announcement has spurred critical discussion about the political future of Bucks County and the whole of the #PA01.  Sean Parnell, the Trump endorsed candidate for US Senate, went to court to try and place a “sweeping gag order” against his ex-wife.  Parnell's wife filed two PFA's against Sean Parnell in 2017 and 2018.  Some are saying that this can be a liability for his campaign.   Scott Wagner was in the news again this week. On the third anniversary of his epic meltdown underneath a billboard on the side of a highway, Wagner stated that he will pledge $1.5 million to a PAC supporting Jeff Bartos if Bartos gets through the primary. The Lincoln Project put Pennsylvania's right-wing billionaire Jeffrey Yass on blast this week.  The group put together a 30 second ad detailing how Yass uses his money and a web of political action committees to spread disinformation to Pennsylvania's voters.  The group also highlighted a campaign finance complaint filed by Pennsylvania Spotlight & asked viewers to call Attorney General Josh Shapiro and demand action from the complaint.  KU Activists are holding a protest on Tuesday, October 19 from 10:30 - noon at the Alumni Plaza to advocate for the rights of disabled students, faculty, and staff. We all deserve an environment that is safe for us. Look for posters around campus soon! Yes, Captain Kirk got to go to space. Well, the edge of space at least. William Shatner joined three other passengers on Blue Origin's second rich people joy ride into suborbital space on Wednesday.  Gotta love the Dungeon Run.

Rhiannon Rodriguez-Betts is one of the most talented lighting directors that there is around. As a multi-specialist, Rhiannon is equally comfortable building a stage, setting up equipment, sending out rigging points or setting up artist hospitality. A multipotentialite and a creative genius, she sheds some light on the vital mindset of following your passions and sustaining joy and energy in a demanding industry. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ The importance of enjoying what you do. Rhiannon shares that the nature of her job can be highly stressful, but she lives by the idea of why work in the entertainment industry if you don't find it entertaining?  ✔️ Find possibilities in the mundane of daily life. "We uncover something else to do with our time besides being upset and finding entertainment in whatever it is that we're doing." ✔️ To handle different and difficult personalities at work can be very challenging for Rhiannon over the years. Still, she considers opportunities to grow and figure out how to communicate with fellow people. It is essential to listen to what it is that they're saying and hopefully not react poorly.  ✔️Why not get into this exciting profession? There is an international alliance of theatrical and stage employees all over the United States and Canada. You can connect with a local one nearby, see if they accept applications, and give them a shot. There are lots of opportunities all over the world as well to try.   ✔️Show up in the world with your spiritual integrity, your authority, and quit playing small. Be a lighthouse and shine your light from the inside out.  Rhiannon Rodriguez-Betts is regarded as one of the most sought-after lighting directors and stage crew members in the city of Portland. She takes an artistic approach each time she designs a show with strong attention to the details laid out by each artist. Rhiannon's artistry can be seen at all of Portland's major concert facilities, including the Roseland Theater, Crystal Ballroom, and sporting events at the Moda Center. As a multi-specialist, Rhiannon is equally as comfortable building a stage, setting up equipment, sending out rigging points or setting up artist hospitality as a lighting director.  Rhiannon has a solid commitment to her community and often answers calls to activism. One such answer brought her to serve a term as President of her union International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 28; another saw her serving in the Oregon Employment Department Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Benefit Workgroup.

Some 60,000 behind-the-scenes workers in the film industry could soon walk off the job, after a historic vote from union members to approve a possible strike. Many of those employees live and work right here in New Mexico, and are members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE).

Episode 142: IATSE Strike Authorization/Texas Abortion Law SB8

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) have voted almost unanimously to enact a Strike Authorization. Over 98% of the 89% of voters voted YES to Strike Authorization. This means if the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP) fails to come to an agreement with IATSE, then a strike will be underway and all production of television and movies will cease. SB8, the controversial Texas Abortion Law was sent back to Federal Court this past weekend. US District Judge Robert Pitman is questioning wether the Deputization of private citizens is a proxy for the state to enforce this law. This would violate Roe v. Wade. Over 600 protests around the country took place this weekend to demand an overturn of this law. Women in Texas have been forced to carry pregnancies to term, or flee to neighboring states for care. This has led to their abortion clinics being overrun.

Milo Ventimiglia (@MiloVentimiglia) is an actor, director and producer. And one of the hottest stars in America. He's also a really nice, hard-working and fascinating guy. And a guy with very strong opinions about everything from Afghanistan, to Senator Joe Manchin's obstructionism, to a strike in Hollywood by the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) union. Milo is a fighter who stands up for what he believes in--not just in the roles he plays--but also in real life. And this is Milo the fighter as candid as you'll ever hear him.  After early recognition for roles with Sylverstor Stallone in Rocky Balboa, on Gilmore Girls and the NBC series Heroes, Milo went on to star as Jack Pearson in the massively popular NBC drama, This Is Us. Now, the humble son of a Vietnam vet is a household name. He has received three Emmy nominations and won a Screen Actors Guild Award. But over a decade before that, Ventimiglia toured Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan with the USO in support of US troops. And he's done it multiple times since.  Now, he's using his star power to help veterans and to stand with working people. He's supported veterans charities, and for the last month, has been making phone calls to US Senators to help a generation of men and women who've served since 9/11 create a Global War on Terror Memorial on The National Mall in Washington.  Milo's been a friend of our host, Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff), for many years. They've worked together on issues, appeared together on political talk shows, and spent late nights hanging out in Hollywood getting pancakes. Milo shares the inside scoop on what's to come on This Is Us, he'll take us behind a red carpet with Nicole Kidman, and he'll talk about creating a super action hero movie with past Independent Americans guests like, Bradley Whitford, Jeffrey Wright, Wes Chatham, Jon Bernthal, Jane Horton and Henry Rollins. You will be entertained. And inspired.  It's another conversation that keeps it real. The kind to help you stay vigilant. Because  eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. Our host, national security and political analyst and Army veteran Paul Rieckhoff takes you behind the scenes for candid conversations with top leaders from all backgrounds. It's a bold and blunt perspective you won't find anywhere else on the media landscape. You can support the show and join our dynamic community of listeners by joining the IA Patreon community.

The International Alliance of Stage and Theatrical Stage Employees is voting on "Strike Authorization", the process for formally striking union wide, from October 1st through the 3rd. They are fighting for an end of "Fraturdays", a schedule of being worked 14-18 hours ending the shift on Sunday morning. They are also fighting for an end to 14-18 hour shifts throughout the work week as this has resulted in numerous deaths, car accidents, and workplace accidents/illnesses. The United Farm Workers are going on strike in opposition to California Governor Gavin Newsom's (D) veto of AB-616. This bill would have given UFW members and other Agricultural Unions the ability to vote in union elections via mail in ballot. Sharp criticism emerged against Newsom, who allowed mail in ballots for his recall election, but not for union elections.

Through the support of ever-growing subsidies, trade deals, and taxes global corporations have ballooned, creating a highly violent, exploitative, and absurd global trade system. So absurd, that often we fixate on the hypocrisy of how it became possible that food packaged and processed on the other side of the world is somehow “cheaper” than that which is grown by our neighbors. In this week’s episode, we learn about what continues to strengthen and uphold the wastefulness of our global trade system and how global corporations decimate diversity in terms of species, livelihoods, and identities with guest Helena Norberg-Hodge. Helena Norberg-Hodge is an innovator of the new economy movement. She is author of the inspirational classic Ancient Futures, and Local is Our Future. Helena is the founder and director of Local Futures and The International Alliance for Localisation, and a founding member of the International Commission on the Future of Food and Agriculture, the International Forum on Globalization and the Global Ecovillage Network. Music by Dana Anastasia and Chloe Levaillant. Visit our website at forthewild.world for the full episode description, references, and action points.
