SAG-AFTRA's national board late Saturday approved the union's new primetime TV and movie contract with Hollywood producers.
The proposed three-year deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers now goes to the performers union's 165,000 members for ratification. ...
The agreement follows deals between Hollywood's producers and the unions representing directors and writers, so if SAG-AFTRA's membership approves the new pact, all of the industry's creative unions will be under contract through 2017.
What we're looking at is the contours that will heavily influence the IATSE Basic Agreement, slated to be negotiated next Spring, and the Animation Guild contract that will presumably follow soon after.
The IA will commence early planning in September and October; the Animation Guild will be tracking along with them.
