Negotiations are almost finalized
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.
