AMPTP and SAG-AFTRA Reach Tentative Agreement on TV/Theatrical Contracts


SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on successor agreements covering motion pictures, scripted primetime dramatic television and new media production.


A Record-Breaking Deal. In a total package valued at a record-breaking $318 million, the union achieved gains in residuals paid for high-budget subscription streaming; unprecedented increases to the contribution rate to the pension, health and retirement funds (up to 2%, including optional wage diversions); groundbreaking improvements to provisions governing nudity, simulated sex and sexual harassment for all performers, including background; additional protection of the overtime provisions for weekly stunt performers on episodic productions; and an increase to the background count in episodic television in the West Coast zone in the second year of the contract.
