The Local 764 Constitution requires that those registering be of legal age and a resident of Local 764’s jurisdiction for 18 months. Under some special circumstances, the Local can request a waiver of the 18 months from the General Secretary Treasurer of the IATSE International. Please note that the residency requirement itself is NEVER waived.
Anyone wishing to be considered for registration should submit a current resume and 3 letters of recommendation to the union office. Please do not send until the entire packet is complete. The committee will only consider complete submissions. The committee will review the submissions and you will be notified when the submissions are received. If sending by email, please send as a PDF attachment.
Submissions can be made by:
Mail: 545 West 45th Street, 2nd Floor
New York, NY 10036
Recommendations can be from employers, educators, and union members. These will be initially reviewed by the Business Representatives and then forwarded to the Registration Committee. You will be contacted by the committee within thirty days of receipt of your materials. The following is considered in the review:
If the applicant has the appropriate qualifications, an interview with the Registration Committee is arranged. At the interview, the eligibility process for membership is explained, a registration form is completed, and a non-refundable $100.00 application fee is paid. Securing work in the jurisdiction is the only method of gaining membership. Registration does not guarantee membership. Membership does not guarantee employment. Wardrobe supervisors still need to interview all prospective staff for their productions. Applicants are asked to note they have registered with the union on their resumes when applying for jobs within the Local 764 jurisdiction.
When you are eligible for membership, the following financial obligations apply:
Initiation fee $1,000.00
Quarterly IA dues $59.00 ($236.00 per year)
Local Work Dues 2% of gross salary
