Welcome Arts and Cultural Workers Union!

May 19, 2020

The VDLC welcomes our newest affiliate, Arts and Cultural Workers Union (IATSE Local B-778)! 

This newly chartered local of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts (IATSE) represents workers who established the Vancouver Artists Labour Union Co-operative (VALU CO-OP), but also includes units for independent visual artists (including painters, installation artists, and sculptors), media artists, illustrators, photographers, art administrators, art assistants, curators, cultural workers, and tattoo artists in British Columbia.
