What unions are out there? I know some AC's in the union but I keep hearing different things.

Is there a union for the whole camera department?
Do the unions have different positions like loader, AC, operater, DP, etc.?

What unions are out there?

Thanks for explaining some basics to a newbie :lol:

Here's a link to the Local 600 website. They cover loaders, assistants, operators, D.P.'s, unit still photographers, D.I.T.'s, publicists, and a few other classifications. There are plenty of other unions for other departments.

For the other newbies out there:

I called the NY Local 600 Cineamatographers guild and they were very helpful. They send you a introductory information package with the payments and the classifications.

There is an AC testing every year, around late fall. I won't be in NYC until summer of 2007 so it doesn't make any sense for me to take it this year.

I think they should fix up their website and get a forum like this one. IMHO. :ph34r:
