Help Stef and Tony Di Stefano, organized by Charles Cantrell

Dim the lights for a Brother.

It is with great sadness that we share that Brother Anthony Di Stefano passed last night. Tony was an amazing Audio Engineer, a former Vice-President of the Local, Disney Cast Member, the long term Audio Crew Chief at Epic, an passionate Show Steward. He mentored more then just a few talented union reps, and audio techs. He was a caring husband to Sister Stef Di Stefano.

As we know more information we will share it. In the meantime a Go Fund Me has been set up to help his family through this hard time. Anyone that has the ability, please consider helping out Tony’s family through this time.

Happy Kwanzaa to all those celebrating!

The candles represent seven virtues:

Umoja (unity)
Kujichagulia (self-determination)
Ujima (collective work and responsibility)
Ujamaa (cooperative economics)
Nia (purpose)
Kuumba (creativity)
Imani (faith)

Always an honor to speak with our Union family! A lot of questions about the housing crisis in Central Florida. As someone who was priced out of my last home, it’s very personal for me. Thanks for having me IATSE Local 631.
Proud to have worked behind the scenes again this year to kill the union busting bill, so called paycheck protection, HB 1197. That’s why we need a governor that will actually “protect” workers!

Is there an interest in Shop Carpentry Training?
I can't post what we shot out at WDW but the crew excelled through some difficult circumstances and the production crew had nothing but Kudo's for all involved. Thank you to everyone.
Stagehands are an odd bunch. They are decidedly on the working class side of some line, and as a group they have a penchant for vulgarity and cynicism. Yet, it's in the nature of their work that they are well-traveled, well-exposed to the arts, and have a finely-tuned sense of the aesthetic.
Local 362 joined Central Florida AFL-CIO, Representative Anna V. Eskamani, IATSE Local 631, CWA 3108 Union Hall and others in downtown Orlando today to call on Marco Rubio to support workers and vote to #PassThePROAct. We need Labor Law reform NOW! #PROAct #unitehere #1u
You know what else can get workers to $15 an hour? Unions. ✊ If the wage will not be risen by Congress, then it is time for workers to band #Together for mutual aid, just like IATSE Local 631 and other unions did at Walt Disney World.
I need YOUR help to bring awareness to OUR industry. SHARE-SHARE-SHARE-SHARE-SHARE-SHARE Friday Feb. 12th at 7PM we bring to you our fourth installment of the BackStage Benefit Fund concert series presented by IATSE Local 12 - Columbus, Ohio The motive behind this series is to raise money and awareness for local unemployed live entertainment workers who have been impacted by Covid-19. 100% of the proceeds raised goes directly to them! AND DID WE MENTION THE REMAINDER OF THE SERIES WILL BE FREE? This weeks featured artist: Blend So please join us in playing a role to fight for OUR industry! https://fb.me/e/cPJYmwBBi
I will be retiring from WDW on Feb. 12. What do you need from me in order to drop out of the union?
On Team Anna, we have so much love and respect for the working class, and the champions who fight for them! Join us with Paul Cox of IATSE Local 631 this afternoon to explore how we build a state that works for all, not just a few. Sharing our lineup of speakers throughout the day, so keep an eye on our page! RSVP by 3:00pm EST at bit.ly/demfuturefl ✊
