Question of the Day – Leads and Supes

We asked Steve Kaplan:

How is union membership handled for leads and supervisors? Traditionally these positions are exempt from overtime, are they eligible for union membership?


The only “management” positions that wouldn’t be eligible would be those with hiring and firing abilities. In a typical vfx shop setting, that’s few to none of the leads and supes.
