Victory for ‘Biggest Loser’ crew

Last week we reported that “The Biggest Loser” crew was losing out. They were on strike to protest the producers’ decision to impede their efforts to join the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) in order to earn health care and retirement benefits for themselves and for their families.

Today we’re happy to report that the crew members’ actions were a success! Though the agreement is confidential at this point, we do know that last week the producers agreed to improved health care benefits for the workers – the sensible demand made by the crew in the first place.

While theatrical productions typically celebrate the end of a show by tearing down the set, today we celebrate the end of the strike knowing that the crew of “The Biggest Loser” is back on set! And they’ve come back with a voice on the job and the knowledge that together – as a union – they can hold the line on issues like health care and retirement benefits that are so vital for working families.
