Strike talks skedded

World Brief

Producers are hoping talks on Wednesday will avert Thursday’s national one-day actors strike.

The stop-work would disrupt production of up to five dramas including “Neighbors,” “Home and Away” and “Blue Heelers.”

Thesps want higher residuals, pay increases for guest stars and an improvement in the contract options that bind them to further episodes (Daily Variety, July 9).

The Screen Producers Assn. of Australia, repping the employers, is due to meet Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance reps in the Industrial Relations Commission.

Strike won’t affect telepic “Go Big” or low-budget pic “Right Here, Right Now” after the union reached agreements with the respective producers.
