Motion Picture &
Theatrical Trade Division

Thank you for visiting the Motion Picture and Theatrical Trade page of the Teamsters web site. The Motion Picture and Theatrical Trade Division represents workers in the motion picture industry including firms that produce feature films, television programs, commercials, and live theatrical productions.

We have a longstanding tradition of producing one of the world’s most popular forms of leisure media. I look forward to using these pages to inform you of issues that affect our workers and the millions of other hard-working men and women in the motion picture industry.

As the labor movement travels down the information highway it is important that we not lose sight of our commitments to one another as working people. The internet has given us another valuable tool in organizing workers who are without a true voice in their workplaces. The Teamsters are pleased to host this website as a service for all working people who cherish the ideals of trade unionism like fair wages, good jobs, financial security and a better future for our families.
