SAG to redraw toon pact

Residuals the key negotiating point for voiceover thesps

HOLLYWOOD — Reps for the Screen Actors Guild will resume contract talks today with producers over a new TV animation contract for voiceover performers.

The current three-year pact expired June 30 and has been extended to Oct. 31, meaning that SAG members continue to work under provisions of the pact’s third year. Guild spokesman Greg Krizman said it was not unusual for such extensions on smaller contracts.

Sallie Weaver, national director of strategic planning and chief negotiator on the contract, told members that residuals are the key issue in talks with animation producers. She also said the goal is “to build on the success” of the basic TV-film deal that SAG reached in July, providing for more than $123 million in pay hikes over three years.
