Theatrical Wardrobe Union (TWU) Local, 768 is a professional services union that is  dedicated to providing exceptionally skilled wardrobe professionals to the live theatrical entertainment industry to the greater Los Angeles Area.  Our proficient local members work in a wide range of fields which include: wardrobe attendants (dressers), seamstresses, tailors, fitters, milliners, craft persons and wardrobe supervisors.

TWU, 768 received its Charter on December 3, 1942 from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, Its Territories and Canada, AFL-CIO, CLC (IATSE).  Previously (1932 - 1942), this Local was known as the Theatrical Wardrobe Attendant’s Union Local #17982 and was originally an affiliate member of the American Federation of Labor. Since then, we expanded from a handful of members to well over a hundred members in good standing.

We have collective bargaining agreements with most of the major theatres and arenas in the Los Angeles area including the Ahmanson Theatre, Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles Opera Company, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Nokia Theatre, Staples Center, Pantages Theatre, Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles, and the Mark Taper Forum.  We also represent the costume department employees (which include wig and make-up employees) at Universal Studios Hollywood Tours/Theme Park.

Our fellow IATSE Local, Motion Picture Costumers #705 provides representation for costume employees in the film and television industry in Los Angeles
