Nick Contract Ratification

Today the employees of Nickelodeon Animation Studio voted overwhelming to ratify a new two-year contract between Nickelodeon and The Animation Guild, Local 839, IATSE. ...

The new Nick-TAG Collective Bargaining Agreement includes:

1) Ten sick days per year.

2) The Animation Guild/AMPTP 2015 package (10% pension increase; 3% minimum wage increases; 30% increases for Pension and Health contributions for Unit Rate storyboard artists.

3) Two-year contract term, ending on July 31, 2018 with other 839 Collective Bargaining Agreements.

The previous contract ended on July 31, 2016.

Nick-Viacom, the Guild and the IATSE have been in ongoing discussions since then, and reached agreement on a new deal a week ago. Both sides felt it was important that the new contract finis at the same time as TAG's 2015 agreements, so a July 31, 2016 end date is part of the 2016-2018 contract.
