IAPE At 80

As we celebrate the 80th anniversary of IAPE, we'll take an occasional look back at key moments in our Union's history. Follow along with our #IAPEat80 series here.

In 1975, the Vietnam War finally came to an end, VHS and Betamax began their own battle for control of the videotape market, inflation was spiraling out of control, and IAPE members were being urged to accept a 12.5% pay increase.

It was a different time.
