Please do not send us originals.Those who are currently IA members in another Studio Mechanics Local or those who are transferring from another Studio Mechanics Local or Hollywood Motion Picture Craft Specific Local must provide copy of current Local Union Membership Card or letter specifying initiation date at that Local and your craft(s).

     The Rest of the Process:                                                             

    Once these are completed and you have completed the second part of the application, it will be reviewed by a Board of Committee Members (each a member of the Local 478). After this review the application will then be voted upon by the attending members of the specified membership meeting. During the week following the meeting, applicants will be notified of their status. Once notified, the applicant must take the Oath within 1 quarter (90 days/3 months) otherwise the application will be closed and the applicant must start over.
