If a hurricane threatens New Orleans, IATSE Local 478 procedures for closure are as follows:
It is up to each production/employer to notify all their crew members/employees of the evacuation procedures and departmental preparations.
The website will have the possibilities for members to communicate.
Re-opening will occur once clearance is given by the City of New Orleans.
The posted IATSE Local 478 Weather Policy has been prepared to ensure the safety of our members.
This policy is provided to all the productions in our jurisdiction; although please note it is not contractual and non-enforceable.
Please contact the business office with any weather related concerns.
