IATSE Local 205 is starting an educational seminar program to help raise the skill levels for all workers in Austin. These are short seminars on basic crafts and skills, presented by IATSE Local 205 for any and all Austin stagehands.
The first educational seminar will be held on Monday, October 24th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the IBEW Building, 3rd Floor meeting room, 4818 E. Ben White Blvd, Austin TX 78741.
The topic of October’s seminar is basic audio- connectors, equipment, signal flow and gain structure.
There is no cost to attend the seminar, however you must RSVP to so that we can plan for how many people will attend.
Dell World is moving into Austin Convention Center on October 14th and out on October 20th under several clients including Production Support Services, Las Vegas, GES and Freeman AV to name the largest. We need approximately 200 technicians and hands to fill all the calls. Therefore, we are requesting ALL members who are available to work this October and November to please call in and support your union.
We have crew calls at Paramount theater for Austin Film Fest and several other small jobs that have been added this week as well.
Due to the busy nature of these two months, you may report your availability to work in three ways: call into the HH phone number or, email or, wishlist jobs that you are available to work on Call Steward. (Note, if you wishlist a job, you are reporting that you are available for any position and for the entire job as there is no mechanism in Call Steward to request certain positions or days.) Set your vacation manager for days not available.
Whichever way you choose, report your availability for this specific time frame as soon as possible and we will endeavor to put you to work.
