The Theatrical Stage Employees of IATSE Local 28 have been working on stages in Portland, Oregon for over 116 years. In March 1894, seventeen people came together to form a Portland Theatrical Stage Employees Union. The formal application was submitted in January 1895 and was approved on March 1st of that year. Now Local 28 has over 200 members who are highly skilled career professionals. And because Local 28 has had a long history in Portland’s Theatrical venues, our members have worked with and supported some of the greatest names in the entertainment industry: Elvis, The Beatles, Sade, Barry Manilow, and even corporate giant Nike, among others. Currently IATSE 28 members support shows in Portland at the Keller Auditorium, Schnitzer Concert Hall, Rose Garden Arena, Memorial Coliseum, and Newmark and Winningstad Theaters. And we don’t just work in theaters—we also support business conferences, as well as live concerts in arenas and outdoor venues throughout the Portland metro area and southern Washington.

Our members are on the job making sure that the audience gets entertained, from Broadway shows to concerts; sporting events to corporate tradeshows. The skill and craftsmanship that our members bring to the workplace make productions successful. Many in the general public are unaware of the important contributions our members make to every show. We take that as the ultimate compliment for a job well done and evidence that we, the members of IATSE Local 28, are proud to be a part of the largest entertainment labor organization in the world.

The Union Behind Entertainment.
