Why join?

Entertainment companies are formed to make profits. However, in pursuing this goal, the interests and well being of the skilled artists and crafts people serving the entertainment industry are frequently compromised or, in many cases, entirely overlooked. Therefore, the Art Directors Guild Local 800’s goal is to improve the quality of its members lives through "collective bargaining". Simply stated, when we stand together we are able to negotiate wages, working conditions and benefits that are fair and reasonable. Health and welfare, retirement benefits and minimum wage scales and working conditions are negotiated by the union in the majority of our collective bargaining agreements, and the employers make contributions on behalf of covered employees, in accordance with those agreements.
