Although Bravo has taken over Shahs of Sunset, Motion Pictures Editors Guild union is going to give them a tough time.

Bravo have taken over and Motion Picture don’t like it at all. They are not going to let them pink slip the post production crew. They will make sure that the crew that once used to work for the Ryan Seacrest Productions, is not left alone. 

They will do everything in their power whether it is with picket lines or going to the court. IATSE Local 700 organizer Rob Callahan was speaking with the media and he said that “the right to organize, including the right to strike, is enshrined in federal law”. 

He also said that it is a violation of the law for any employer to be discharged for talking about their rights. He also said that it is going to be unlawful if the employers started retaliating against the employees. 

The IATSE and the Editors Guild will stand for the rights of those employees. One spokesperson said that “the Editors Guild will have some serious defending to do”. 

Whereas we've heard that Bravo is going to be taking the show non-union going ahead. It has been almost two weeks and no talks have been scheduled. The editors of Shahs of Sunset are likely to be off the job permanently starting from today. 

It is also reported that Bravo is going to be taking control of the production for the season 4. Ryan Seacrest Productions will remain as executive producers of the series. 

And the editors that are looking for a union contract are likely to have nothing to do with the postproduction. As soon as the strike was started against Bravo, they pulled the October 13 debut date of Shahs of Sunset. 

A cable network announced that the new date was yet to be released by Bravo. Bravo is doing everything in their power to get the show back on track. RSP said that Bravo controls the rights of “Shahs of Sunset” and consequently they will have to make all the final decisions.
