Our Value

We exist to carry out the required provisions of the collective bargaining agreements between the film and television industry’s West Coast Studio Local Unions and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP).

Additionally, Contract Services acts as a “one-stop shop” to carry out a long list of regulatory and legal obligations that must be implemented on behalf of the studios. Consolidating all of these required services under Contract Services’ roof creates enormous time and cost savings for everyone. Without Contract Services, each employer would need to perform all of its own safety training, manage their own Substance Testing Programs, and maintain individual studio rosters, all of which would be operationally impractical with a freelance workforce. We save an enormous amount of money and time for the studios and alleviate administrative burdens that could gridlock production schedules.

Of all the work we accomplish at Contract Services, providing the training that keeps workers safe on set is our most important mission. Our Safety Pass training is unrivaled anywhere in the world in terms of breadth, relevance and quality. This helps the studios maintain their strong safety record — and we believe it has helped save lives!
