VFX Union Meetup – 5/21

Monday May 21st.

Culver Hotel

9400 Culver Boulevard  Culver City, California 90232
12-3 pm

Hopefully, you’ve received one of the 500 cards and buttons we shared with our Imageworks colleagues. Have questions? Come down to the Culver Hotel on Monday afternoon and ask. Now is also the time to tell the Union what you want to see in a contract.

IATSE Representatives Vanessa Holtgrewe and Peter Marley along with TAG organizer Steve Kaplan will be back at the Culver Hotel to answer, questions, hand out rep cards, and talk about the next steps necessary to Sony to negotiate a contract for the artists at Imageworks.

This time, the meeting will be held in the dining room of the hotel which is past the lobby. Water, iced tea and lemonade will be available along with some finger-foods. A sign will be placed in the lobby pointing the way to the room.

Heard lots of rumors about healthcare, and 401k plans? Not sure how the retirement benefits work? What would you like to see them do for you? Come by and ask them in person! You don’t need to be a Sony employee to attend. All vfx artists are welcome.

What you need to do:

1. Tell everyone!

2. Take rep cards back to work, and make sure they get signed and returned.

Its best for anyone driving to the meeting to park in the Trader Joe’s lot located just east of the hotel and across the street from Imageworks, or at the Bank of America lot located on the other side of Culver across from the hotel.

    I understand you guys are primarily focused on SPI right now, and think it will be an important step for VFX when you succeed! But per the comment above, I think IATSE/Anim Guild needs to organise a SF bay area meet up in the near future!
