new provisions for SAG-AFTRA 2016 TV and AUDIO

Posted On: Apr 14, 2016

SAG-AFTRA 2016 TV and AUDIO

The new provisions of the SAG-AFTRA 2016 TV and Audio (formerly Radio) Commercials Contracts were posted to the Union and the JPC websites on April 13.Our brief review of the new terms and conditions indicates that there have been several significant changes in Internet and New Media provisions including a revision of the definition of a commercial, creation of four week cycles for internet and a new waiver for commercials made for social media.

Experimental Waivers, which were first negotiated in 2013 for Live Events, Man-on-the-Street and Hidden Camera commercials, have been renewed and have been extended to commercials made for broadcast use, as well as to those made for use on the Internet.

Rates (including allowances, etc) have been increased by 7% across-the-board with a few exceptions. Stand-in’s session will increase by 10% in addition to the general increase. Class A use will increase by 2% in addition to the general increase. Cable use will increase by 6% in addition to the general increase. P&H/H&R contributions are now at 18%, up from 16.8%.

There are many other new and revised provisions to be reviewed. The JPC is, of course, planning Town Hall meetings to explain these negotiated changes in detail and to answer any questions that you might have. We’ll continue to keep you posted about as this information becomes available.

As usual, increases in payments and P&H contributions due for commercials made or integrated after April 1 will be retroactive to April 1. As soon as the membership ratifies the Contracts and the Union and JPC agree upon and publish new rate tables, Bonefide will begin to invoice for any retroactive upgrades.

We’re here to answer any questions you may have.

Negotiations are almost finalized

Posted On: Apr 08, 2016

On April 3rd, the Joint Policy Committee (ANA/4As) and SAG-AFTRA announced a tentative agreement has been reached for the 2016 TV & Radio Commercials Contract.

The deal is schedule to be reviewed by SAG-AFTRA Board of Directors on April 9th and 10th. Once approved, the agreement will be sent to the membership for ratification. Following, new rates and terms will be finalized and put into effect.

Details of the agreement will be released after the Board meeting this weekend. Until then, we recommend you plan for new rates for all commercials produced on or after April 1, 2016 and for “new” commercials edited from existing footage, on or after April 1, 2016. Term or Celebrity Contracts that have an effective start date of April 1 may also be affected by any increase in the Pension & Health contribution rate.

Once the agreement has been made public, we will be in touch to assist you with implementing the new contract.
Bonefide is here to answer any questions you may have.
