About Us

Before Local 728 existed we were a part of IATSE Local 37, a Hollywood Local that emcomapassed all back lot crafts. When some members of Local 37 (dubbed the "37 White Rats") grew restive and launched a rebellion against organized crime's control of the IATSE, the International Alliance broke up Local 37 and in 1939 created Locals 728, 727, 80 and 44.

Read about it in "The War for Warner Brothers".
