About 50 IATSE Hollywood guild workers gathered for an informal picket in front of the Hallmark Channel offices on Ventura Blvd this morning to protest the cable network’s continuing contract for TV movies from Larry Levinson Productions (LLP). Most of the protesters are former Levinson production employees who have been replaced with non-union workers. The IATSE workers organizing the protests say they have brought their cause to the attention of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s District Office. IATSE organized a series of protests in Simi Valley where LLP was shooting Mega Storm for NBC. Now LLP is already employing scabs on its production A Soldiers Love Story for Hallmark.
