Entertainment workers of IATSE prepare to strike
Tens of thousands of workers in the entertainment industry are preparing for a strike, possibly within days, that could stop the production of most movies and TV shows nationwide.
Make-up artists, editors, costume designers and others who are members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, or IATSE, voted overwhelmingly in favor of a strike earlier this month.
The last time Hollywood crews went on a major strike over a contract was during World War II.
