The IATSE Basic Agreement -- of which the Animation Guild used to be a part but is no longer -- was ratified this afternoon:

IATSE members have ratified the three-year deal reached in April with the AMPTP, the union announced Tuesday. The move was expected -- the deal had been unanimously endorsed by the union’s negotiating committee -- though some opposition had emerged. Ratification is conducted on a local-by-local basis (each local is located in Los Angeles and corresponds to a different work category). Vote totals were not made public. ...

Tthe contract was okayed by a healthy margin. The Animation Guild is now reviewing language in its Memorandom of Agreement, and hopes to have its own ratification vote soon.

Our deal is similar to the larger agreement up above.
