Employment at TAG Union Shops, 2007-
There are 192 more members employed under our jurisdiction at TAG shops than there were in January of this year, the last time we broke down the state of employment.
Breakdown by Employer of Members at Union Shops, August 2010
The numbers in brackets are the number of members employed. A year or so ago, DreamWorks passed Disney to become the largest employer of TAG members. (The Disney numbers are inclusive of all divisions we cover - features, DisneyToons, Disney TV Animation, etc., with members working under a TAG contract as well as others working under IATSE contracts.)
Changes in TAG Employment Patterns, August 2008-August 2010
This increase in employment over the last two years comes in spite of the fact that two substantial employers (Universal and Imagi) are no longer in existence, and by the first part of 2011 ImageMovers Digital will be gone. However, we've gained another potentially large employer (Hasbro), and there are others (such as Bento Box) that may increase to where they go past thirty covered employees and become another listed slice of our increasingly diverse pie.
