We are always looking for prospective new members of Local 489, but we have a process that must be followed in order to be referred for work and eventually join. If you have any questions about the process or the status of your application, please contact the department representatives.
We maintain a Permit List of persons who have undergone a preliminary screening to suitability for entry-level work on productions. Prospective members need to first be added to the Permit List, and then after they have worked on union productions for a while they may have an opportunity to join the union. Members of the Local are considered first when work is available, but there will be times when there are not enough members to fill the available jobs. When this happens, we look to the Permit List for additional workers.
Fill out the form below to apply for the Permit List.
