SAG board OKs TV voice pact

Guild signs 3-year deal, gets 10% wage increase

The Screen Actors Guild’s national board of directors on Wednesday approved a three-year agreement between SAG and 108 television animation producers that grants voiceover performers a 10% wage increase over the period.

The agreement follows the live action television/theatrical negotiations completed earlier this year in providing wage increases of 3%, 3.5% and 3.5% in each new contract year. This immediately increases the basic voiceover session fee from $559 to $576.

The contract has no impact on the terms covering voiceover performers in theatrical animation as this work is covered by SAG’s basic theatrical agreement.

Negotiations for the new pact, which is retroactive to July 1 of this year, were completed on Aug. 5 at the AMPTP offices. The parties also agreed that a two-year residual study, established under the television/theatrical contract, will be expanded to include the field of television animation.

The Alliance of Motion Picture Television Producers veep Carol Lombardini negotiated for the animators. National executive director Ken Orsatti and Hollywood executive director Leonard Chassman repped SAG.
