    The best unions are the ones that make the training available, or insist upon it.

    If our dear Lieber wonders onto a set, he can thank IATSE local 80, and their required rigging classes for making it safe to walk under some 50 foot techno jib, or . He will only have to endure the wrath of the Key grip. Anyone on an LA union set can thank IATSE local 728 for never dropping a PAR can or a 2K from the rafters.

    The longshoremen, seafarers, and many of the other unions I have had friends or family members in truly make the world a safer place.

    I wish Jeff and his daughter the best.
