Housing is Key/Rent Relief
The South Bay Large Employers Committee has been sharing information and technology to assist in getting us back to work. Last week the group worked with us to create a new organization and the Live@25 guidelines. The organization is the California Alliance of the Live Event Industry (CALEI).
The new organization's focus will be on restarting the live event industry safely when counties in California enter the yellow tier (Minimal-Risk). As a large group that includes labor, employers, arts groups, industry leaders, corporations, non-profits, and venues, the alliance will be representing hundreds of organizations and half a million live event workers.
With a broad alliance, we have a much better chance of having a robust and targeted message. We will be able to work with the state to get our industry restarted. We will need some help with the new alliance. If you have some time and would like to help us out, please register on the website https://calei.org/contact-us
If you know of any companies or organizations that would benefit from joining CALEI, please send them the to this URL https://calei.org/

Please review them and hold on to them until you receive your statement. Review them with your family, if applicable, and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Your Open Enrollment Statement will be mailed to you separately around November 18th. If you are a registered user on the Funds website, you will receive an email when your statement is available to view online.
The Plan C relief approved by the Trustees will be reflected on your statement. Click here to read the Health & Welfare Plan C relief notice that was sent to participants on October 7, 2020.

Politics is not at the top of the priority list for many in this harrowing time, but with a critical election looming this fall I wanted to get in touch with you regarding IATSE PAC.
With virtually all our industry out of work, I understand the stark reality of the economic strain you must be facing. My department’s first priority, as you have seen in our relentless legislative efforts, is to get relief for you and ensure you can endure this pandemic until a safe return to work is possible. Kitchen table issues and your livelihood come first. However, make no mistake that anti-worker politicians and organizations are hoping our union’s political resources are diminished by this crisis so they can have the field to themselves.
Like yourself, we are dedicated volunteers and the primary infrastructure of our Alliance’s political and legislative activism. Your IATSE kin follow your lead with the types of activism you pursue in the local’s political program, which is why I’m making this appeal to you. I recognize that many do not have supplemental resources as a result of this crisis, but if you do, there’s no more vital of a time to start giving.
Will you consider signing up for a recurring monthly contribution to IATSE PAC at whatever level you are comfortable? You can do so by visiting www.IATSEPAC.net
In a time when homelessness in California has reached epidemic proportions, IATSE Local 107 is proud to share a portion of it's One Warm Coat Drive donations with Covenant House Oakland. We strongly believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; they deserve to be loved, valued and provided an opportunity to achieve their dreams.
Thank you, Shelby Booker, for opening up your doors to us and the homeless youth in Oakland. Please visit Covenant House Oakland to learn how you too can help!
