IATSE Local 63 Certifies Manitoba Theatre for Young People

Winnipeg, Manitoba– Local 63 Winnipeg, with the assistance of the International, filed an application for certification on April 4, 2008 for all stagehands, including Technical Director and Production Assistants at MTYP.

The Employer challenged the Local’s application and after a series of hearings held in 2008, the Manitoba Labour Board issued a certificate on January 19, 2009, agreeing with the Union and included Technical Director and Production Assistants.

MTYP has grown to become one of the most respected professional theatre companies in Canada, for children or adults. The company moved to the CanWest Global Performing Arts Centre into a 28,000 square foot facility, that stands out as a unique environment, unlike anything else in Canada.
