Trouble in Pine Valley

And a labor organization (wouldn't you know?) is in the middle of it.

The union that represents the "All My Children" crew thinks the soap may be underpaying its members.

The issue is between Prospect Park, the production company that gave the sudser a new life on the internet, and the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees - Local 52. Representatives from IATSE are going over the production's books to see if "All My Children" has gone over budget and violated a labor agreement in the process, according to an individual with knowledge of the union's plans. ...

Funny thing, but one of our fine entertainment conglomerates underpaid the staff of a half-hour cartoon show late last year and the Animation Guild filed a grievance.

Took us six months to straighten things out, but the crew finally got paid per the contract. (This is about all I can say about the conundrum, confidentiality issues being what they are. But everybody was happy to get their checks. However late they were.)
