Casting directors ratify deal with AMPTP

Current contract expires in one week

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

Hollywood casting directors approved the deal Monday evening, according to Teamsters Local 399 business rep Steve Dayan. The New York members had given the pact their approval last Thursday.

Deal calls for a 2% hike in minumums and a boost in contributions to the pension and health plans. The deal was negotiated over three days earlier this month and will go into effect on Oct. 1.

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, repped through the Intl. Brotherhood of Teamsters. The casting directors were able to obtain the first union contract in 2005 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.
