What Does Joining the Local Mean?

For all intents and purposes, joining Local 480 is a lifelong commitment. Once you are a member, you are responsible for quarterly membership dues (whether or not you are working) and 4% work dues (whether or not they are deducted from your paycheck).

The Union represents professional technicians who work below-the-line in these specific crafts on film and television productions.

While there are different avenues to receive an application to join the Local, everyone (regardless of experience or status) starts the process by registering for an Overflow account.
