These are strange times. But IATSE 891 didn’t take a ‘wait and see’ attitude. It was an active participant in the creation of the BC Motion Picture COVID-19 Pandemic Production Guide. Putting crew members’ safety first, made BC one of the first production centres to get back to work. It also attracted a lot of new productions which signed on with IATSE and put our members first.
