To assist you in planning your participation in your show, we are certain you will appreciate knowing in advance that union labor will be required for certain aspects of your exhibit handling.
Union jurisdictions prevail over all set-up and dismantling of exhibits including signs and laying of carpet. This does not apply to the unpacking and placement of your merchandise. Any installation of exhibits or displays which requires the use of hand tools, or more than one person, or longer than thirty minutes (including crating and uncrating) to install, or exceeds ten feet in any direction, shall be installed by employees covered by this Agreement. One full-time company employee may supervise work with the Union crew.
Union jurisdictions prevail over the operation of all material handling equipment, all unloading and reloading, and handling of empty containers. An exhibitor may move material that can be hand-carried by one person in one trip without the use of dollies, hand trucks, or other mechanical equipment.
TSE is responsible for supervision, assembly and removal of truss assemblies for lighting, audio-visual equipment & special effects, whether hanging or floor standing.
