    Shakespeare Theatre Production Staff Hold Vote On Unionization

    July 28, 2022 // The stagehands, costume and set designers, electricians, audio engineers, and other production staffers at Shakespeare Theatre Company voted to unionize Monday, the result of an organizing effort that began years ago and intensified amid allegations of unfair labor practices during the pandemic. The theater company’s employees voted 23 in favor and 6 against, with a mix of in-person and mailed-in ballots counted by the National Labor Relations Board. The group is represented by IATSE Local 22, the local stagehands union. Nicholas Arancibia, chair of Local 22’s organizing committee, Signature Theater, Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap,
