Musicians in tune with studios, nets

AFM reaches deal for new pact

The American Federation of Musicians has reached a tentative deal with studios and nets to replace the current pact, due to expire Aug. 16.

AFM said Thursday that it reached the agreement June 11. The union did not disclose details of the pact with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, pending ratification by members.

“The cornerstone of these negotiations was our commitment to ensuring that motion pictures and television productions continue to be scored using the best musicians in the world: musicians in the United States and Canada who are represented by the AFM,” said union prexy Thomas F. Lee.

“We have every belief that our agreement will work for the mutual benefit of our musicians and the industry, and that under it we can prosper together for the foreseeable future.”
