Job Description

Job Title: Quality Assurance Engineer


Reports To:
Manager, Quality Assurance




In the mid-1960s, the major film studios, in negotiations with Hollywood’s unions, founded the
non-profit Contract Services Administration Trust Fund (CSATF) and later added Contract Services Administration Trust Training Fund (CSATTF), now collectively referred to as Contract Services (CS). Their charge is to administer apprenticeship, training, and safety programs, maintain seniority rosters, and implement other industry-wide services, studies and/or education. They exist to carry out certain requirements 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), which govern the employment conditions of a freelance union workforce of approximately 50,000 people in the greater Los Angeles area.

CS serves as a conduit to carry out a long list of regulatory and legal obligations that must be implemented on behalf of the studios. Consolidating these functions under the CS
roof creates opportunity for identifying collective solutions, as well as enormous time and cost savings for all stakeholders. Without CS, each employer would need to perform its own basic safety training, manage its own Substance Testing Programs for drivers of regulated motor vehicles and maintain individual studio rosters, all of which would be operationally impractical in the context of a freelance workforce. Because CS performs these functions on behalf of the studios, it saves them an enormous amount of money, time and administrative burden — all of which would gridlock production schedules. CS also alleviates the burden on individual employees, who would otherwise have to participate in many duplicative administrative processes and training programs for each studio employer.

The CS mission is to provide friendly, accurate and dependable service and training for the
entertainment industry (producers, studios, unions and guilds) and the behind-the-scenes workers
as required by union contracts, the law and individual need - supporting the industry through
maintaining various rosters, processing roster applicants, offering quality safety, harassment
prevention and skills training, facilitating the creation and maintenance of industry safety bulletins, validating documents, securely maintaining records and much more.

Training that keeps workers safe on set is critical to this important mission. CS’s Safety Pass
training program is second-to-none in terms of breadth, relevance and
quality. This helps the studios maintain their strong safety record — and they believe it has helped save lives.

Though they act as one, structurally, CS is composed of two separate tax-exempt trust funds — CSATF and CSATTF — which are governed by two boards of trustees, the members of which are appointed by the AMPTP. CSATF is a tax-exempt business league under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(6). CSATTF is a tax-exempt labor organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(5) and an apprenticeship plan subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
