SAG-AFTRA and the ANA-4A’s Joint Policy Committee on Broadcast Talent Union Relations have agreed to a tentative deal on terms for successor television and radio commercials contracts. The deal needs to be approved by the union's board of directors at its APRIL 9-10 meeting. Terms were not disclosed.
SAG-AFTRA Acting President and Negotiating Committee Co-chair GABRIELLE CARTERIS said, “I want to thank the members of the negotiating committee, co-chair SUE-ANNE MORROW, Chief Negotiator DAVID WHITE and our staff for their diligent work. This negotiation dealt with where we are now and where we will be in the future. The tentative agreement delivers essential gains while properly positioning us for future growth in digital and social media. As content evolves, we are poised to grow work opportunities that support members and their families.”
MORROW said, “Our negotiating committee was made up of working commercial performers from all over the country and we secured significant financial gains that will benefit our members right now. Equally important, we achieved creative new elements that make our contract more relevant in a rapidly changing industry and guarantee the expansion of work opportunities for our members. I make the majority of my living as a commercial performer and I am pleased to present this contract to our board for approval."
