Members of this union claim jurisdiction 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. You may install and/or dismantle your exhibit display if one person, who is a full-time employee, can accomplish the task in an hour or less without the use of tools.
If your exhibit preparation, installation or dismantling requires more than 1 hour, you must use union personnel supplied by the Official Decorating Contractor. As an exhibitor, when union labor is required, you may provide your company personnel to work along with a union installer in Southern California on a one-to-one basis.
