Stagehands, ticket collectors and crew members for "Matilda," "Wicked," "Jersey Boys" and other Broadway shows are getting a pay raise.

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), which represents more than 100,000 workers in the film, television and theater industries, said it reached a new three-year contract with Broadway show producers and owners that will give its members undisclosed wage increases.

The agreement also provides higher pay for make-up artists, hairstylists and others working on touring shows and includes "significant employer contributions" to the health and pension plans of workers who are on touring shows, IATSE said in a statement. No contract details were disclosed.

The deal with the New York-based Broadway League, which has over 700 members in 200 cities, was negotiated early Thursday morning after a fifteen-hour marathon bargaining session.

IATSE President Matt Loeb thanked rank-and-file theater workers for their input into the negotiations.

"The observations from these members informed the union’s positions and decisions and helped the union secure a good contract on behalf of all traveling workers under the agreement,'' the statement said.
