Location managers approve three-year deal

Production company pact covers location scouts, managers

Hollywood’s location managers have ratified a three-year deal with production companies on a successor contract, which goes into effect today.

The location managers, repped by Local 399 of the Intl. Brotherhood of Teamsters, met Tuesday to ratify the pact — a week after the tentative agreement had been reached.

The deal covers about 600 location scouts, managers and assistants. Location scouts and managers are among the first below-the-line crew members to be hired on many feature and TV projects.

Negotiators for Local 399 and the companies, repped by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, have negotiated similar deals this year for the master contract for the West Coast locals of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the Basic Crafts contract for Hollywood Teamster drivers and four other basic craft unions.

The pacts contain 2% annual wage increases along with $250 million in new employer contributions to the health plan.

Teamster organizer Steve Dayan said he expects negotiations with the AMPTP to be set soon for the casting directors repped through Local 399. The casting director deal expires Sept. 30.
