Mission & Philosophy

To achieve, by organization and mutual endeavor, the improvement of the social and economic conditions of workers in the Theatrical, Motion Picture, Television and related industries in the United States and its territories engaged in photography or otherwise permanently recording images of all kinds for production; to assure the maintenance of a fair rate of wages for such workers for services competently rendered; to assure the employment of all such workers; to acquire, possess, and disseminate useful information in regard to such work and to secure to ourselves by unity of action such benefits as are rightly ours.
