Matthew Loeb Re-Elected as IATSE President After Year of Turmoil
Matthew D. Loeb was re-elected to a fourth full term as international president of IATSE on Thursday, winning the post without opposition after a tumultuous year for the entertainment union.

Loeb has held the post for 13 years. He was re-elected by acclamation along with a slate of officers, including General Secretary-Treasurer James B. Wood and 17 vice presidents and trustees.

“I accept my nomination with a great sense of duty, humility, and determination, and I am honored to continue to serve as IATSE’s International President,” Loeb said in a message on Twitter.

Over the past year, the union has been wracked by the Covid-19 pandemic and the racial reckoning that followed the murder of George Floyd.

Most of its 150,000 members in the U.S. and Canada were put out of work during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. The union was involved in safety negotiations that helped restart film and TV production last September.
