Casting directors, AMPTP ink tentative deal

Three-year pact covers about 500 members in Hollywood, New York

Hollywood and New York casting directors and associates have reached a tentative three-year deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, less than a month before their current contract expires.

The New York casting directors will meet Thursday to ratify the successor pact, followed by the Hollywood casting directors on Monday, according to Teamsters Local 399 business rep Steve Dayan. No details were available on terms of the deal, which was negotiated over three days earlier this month.

Casting directors ratified a one-year successor contract last September. That pact, which expires Sept. 30, included a 2% hike in minimums along with gains in employer pension and health contributions.

Contract covers about 500 casting directors and associates in Hollywood and New York. The Teamsters were able to obtain the first union contract in 2005 for casting directors following an organizing campaign that lasted three years.

In August, location managers and scouts repped by the Teamsters ratified a three-year deal with production companies on a successor contract covering about 600 employees in the Western states. In July, about 3,000 Hollywood Teamster drivers and four other basic craft unions ratified a three-year successor pact.
