Union reaches deal with Anisa on ‘Model’

Pact to cover 10 employees

Teamsters Local 399 has reached a deal with Anisa Prods. to cover drivers and location managers on “America’s Next Top Model,” a week after the union announced it planned to strike the series.

Anisa president Ken Mok said, “We appreciate the professional manner and spirit of cooperation Local 399 demonstrated in working out this agreement.  These employees play an integral role in the weekly production of our show and we appreciate their contribution.”

Details of the pact, which covers about 10 employees, were not disclosed.

Move comes three days after the Writers Guild of America West asked the federal government to intervene in its long-running dispute over “Top Model” by filing unfair labor practice charges against Anisa. The WGA alleged that the producers unlawfully eliminated the jobs of 12 “Top Model” writers in retaliation for their decision to go on strike in July over Mok’s refusal to grant representation by the WGA.

Mok’s responded by asserting that the reality show now uses editors repped by the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, which puts material directly in the hands of editors without the intermediate step of story producers.
