The IATSE Local 26 West Michigan Stagehands are organizing a rally at the Michigan State Capitol to demand the immediate passage of the HEROES Act by the U.S. Senate. Unemployment is running out for most workers by July 25. It has been a lifeline for stagehands and other workers in the events and entertainment industry. Not extending unemployment benefits will devastate working families. The rally brings together IATSE Locals of Michigan, the Michigan AFL-CIO, other unions throughout Michigan, and non-union workers.

The Heroes Act:

  • Extends pandemic unemployment benefits until 2021
  • Protects medical coverage with a 100% COBRA Subsidy
  • Keeps people in their homes by extending the moratorium on evictions and provides $100 billion in emergency rental assistance
