The second season of Fashion Star is off to a rocky start after production came to a screeching halt on Saturday when International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees went on strike.
The NBC reality competition show is non-union, which means union members can work on the show, but since there isn't a union contract they aren't receiving pension and health benefits.
According to IATSE official Vanessa Holtgrew, the 70 or so workers plan to picket the show until a new contract is reached, which might be a while since there are no talks currently in progress.
If NBC wants a second season, especially since they just hired a new host, they better get their shiz together!
