New Negotiations?!

I'm not talking about the Writers Guild's contract talks...or the Screen Actors Guild's. I'm talking about the Animation Guild, the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employes (our mother international), and Disney Feature Animation with its Laboratory of Many Secrets.

You see, WDFA's Secret Lab Contract expires in about a month. (This is the Collective Bargaining Agreement that Disney Feature Animation has for all of its CGI work. The pact grew out of a division the Mouse House that was formed in '99...and semi-died three years ago.)

Finally, after many false starts, it appears that negotiations will take place at the IA's West Coast offices in Toluca Lake...

The dates for talks (and these are set in moist cement) are October 12th and October 13th.

We wanted you to know. We'll report how the talks go after they're completed.
