Most of Hollywood's TV and movie production could come to a screeching halt as soon as Monday.

Members of IATSE, the union that represents 60,000 below-the-line TV and film workers in Hollywood, is set to start striking just after midnight Monday.

The union is in the midst of negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. They have focused on issues such as worker safety, turnaround time and making sure workers are paid a living wage.

At 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb posted a defiant tweet about the planned start of a potential strike.
