Where are we working?

UPDATE: IM Digital and Imagi added, and math corrected.

The number of people employed at Animation Guild shops has increased by 7.2% in the last three years.

Overall, a modest if not huge increase. The biggest gain has been at DreamWorks whose TAG workforce has increased by 35%; for the first time in over twenty years, a studio other than Disney is our largest employer.

As noted below, Warner Bros. has nearly tripled its staff since 2008. Modest increases at Nickelodeon and Fox were offset by modest declines at Disney, Film Roman, Cartoon Network and Universal.

Over a hundred jobs are to be found at smaller studios. Three new employers - Robin Red Breast, Hasbro and Bento Box - are responsible for almost two hundred new jobs. Thanks to our organizing efforts, the union workforce is not only increasing but diversifying.

Maybe I'm adding wrong but column 1 comes out at 2148 and column 3 - +391????

Perhaps Jeff did the math wrong.

We'll check.

I don't see Imagemovers in the 2008 list. Is that the discrepancy?

And how many of those studios are represented on the Board? Ugh.
