Organizing activities and Political activism – 


Hawaii Labor Coalition – Virtual meetings regarding legislative priorities spanning across the labor movement from County to Federal level


Political Action Committee – 


Set Teacher’s Bill – 


Prompt Payment Statutes – 


Training and Professional development – 


COVID-19 Prevention Training – I’ve received a number of questions regarding access to the required training. I know that many of you are looking to be compliant, but have experienced trouble connecting to the CSATF portal. It’s important to note that “TTF Safety First! Online Courses” does NOT contain the correct course. Check your inbox for an email sent by BA Barber on 10/21/2020 entitled “REQUIRED NEW IATSE COVID-19 TTF Course”. Follow the instructions and you should receive your PIN soon. Make sure to register your account as you receive it. If you’ve already done that, but have yet to receive your PIN, go to and click “Contact Us”. Or reach out directly by sending an email to

That being said, check out “TTF Safety First!”. It’s got a bunch of useful information that help to promote safety at the work site.

Mental Health in the time of COVID-19 – an 8hour class that was held 5am-1pm HST on Friday, December 4th from “Lankey and Limey LLC” – 

Outreach – 

Academy of Creative Media at UH West Oahu – HFEB members were invited to tour the facility as it develops. It’s a fun, tech-centric space that lends itself to emerging media like E-Sports. I don’t think they’ve allocated enough space for pre-production (i.e. mill, wardrobe, G&E, etc) but it looks like somewhere that we could train the next generation of stagehands.

DEI Committee – We’ve met more often this month than ever before. A lot of energy has been focused on organizing internally and strategizing how our work can be implemented for the betterment of the spectrum from individual members to the industry at large. This includes, but is not limited to: gender inclusive policy and procedural language, training and development, recognition and promotion of BIPOC/underrepresented communities in ad campaigns. We will be submitting a report for the 2021 mid-winter General Executive Board meeting.
