Quebec actors agree to pact

Deal covers working conditions, pay

MONTREAL — Quebec’s French-speaking actors have reached an agreement in principle with Quebec producers for a collective agreement covering working conditions and pay rates.

Monday’s deal between the Union des Artistes and the Assn. des Producteurs de Films et de Television du Quebec must be ratified in a vote and neither side wants to disclose details until those votes have taken place.

On Thursday, the Union des Artistes shut down production on TVA Network’s hit comedy series “Le Coeur a Ses Raisons” for the day to put pressure on the producers.

The previous collective agreement expired two years ago and the union has been complaining that actors’ revenues are dropping while producers’ profits are going up.
