SAG, producers utter dubbing pact

Caucus, guild's national board must give OK

The Screen Actors Guild has reached a tentative agreement with producers on a new three-year contract for dubbing performers.

The pact, which still must be approved by the Caucus of Dubbing Performers and SAG’s national board, covers members who provide English-language dubbing services for dialogue in foreign-made films shown in the United States.

The agreement includes provisions for residual payments for the first time, noted David Jolliffe, chair of SAG’s voiceover committee.

“We’re very proud of the progress that we’re making,” he added. “It will help keep the work in the United States rather than offshore.”
