National Labor Relations Board recognizes union affiliation for video techs at Allianz Field

The Minnesota United Major League Soccer team’s video board operators at Allianz Field have decided to affix their union seal to Local 745 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Employees (IATSE).

The Minnesota United team became the first team of in-house stadium video technicians in the state to earn union status on Wednesday after the National Labor Relations Board tabulated the mail-in votes and announced the results, 18–9. Following fruitless attempts to get voluntary recognition from Minnesota United management, the IATSE and Local 745, located in Minneapolis, applied for recognition of the new bargaining group on July 14.

In the United States and Canada, IATSE represents more than 160,000 technical and behind-the-scenes employees, and Local 245 represents more than 200 broadcast professionals in Minnesota and Iowa.
