Our Referral List


Employers under IATSE contract in Texas have agreed to give preference in hiring to those referred to them by IATSE Local 796. Expressly for this purpose, Local 796 maintains a list of qualified broadcast technicians, regularly updated and distributed to contract Employers. This is known as the IATSE 796 Referral List.

IATSE Local 796 Referral List Rules

The following rules apply to all persons listed on the IATSE 796 Referral List:

Failure to pay the Referral Fee on time may result in removal from the Referral List. If an Employee is delinquent in payment, he/she will be notified via email that they are in arrears for that month and subject to being removed from the Referral List. An additional late fee of $50.00 will be assessed for payments received by the IATSE bank lockbox later than the due date for any and all months that payment is past due. If full payment is not received within ten days after notification, the delinquent referent will be removed from the Referral List. All late payments received by the IATSE must allow a processing period of five days. Self-pay Employees must send all payments and ONLY payments to:

IATSE Local 796 Lockbox P.O. Box 202764 Dallas, TX 75320-2764

The Referral Fee is separate from any Union dues and does not entitle Employees to Union membership status. Union membership is not a requirement for inclusion on the Referral List. Because all contracted Employers have agreed to give preference of hiring to those on the Referral List, removal from the Referral List may result in the loss of already booked and/or future contract work.

Please note: It is important to understand that inclusion on the IATSE 796 referral list is not mandatory for employment by contracted Employers. However, contracted Employers have agreed to give preference in hiring to those listed (referred) on our Referral List. For individuals seeking regular employment from IATSE 796 Employers, we recommend inclusion on our Referral List.

Effective 1/20/2020
