7-14-2020 Extending $600 weekly unemployment insurance (UI) federal supplement to state benefits

As most of you are keenly aware, the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation authorized by the CARES Act – the $600 weekly unemployment insurance (UI) federal supplement to state benefits – expires on July 31st without Congressional action. The HEROES Act, which passed the House of Representatives on May 15, extends the CARES Act’s UI provisions through January 2021, but the bill has not been taken up by the Senate. The HEROES Act also addresses most of IATSE’s subsequent COVID-19 legislative priorities.

6-16-2020 From IATSE Comms Department

America faces a crisis on three critical fronts: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism.

As America’s labor movement, we must urgently address all three with precision and purpose. They cannot be fixed separately.

This is why we are coming together nationwide as working people on June 17 in a “Workers First Caravan for Racial and Economic Justice”—to demand Congress pass the HEROES Act and address police reforms that are urgently needed.
