DGA, SAG-AFTRA, WGA Negotiations Coming Into View

AMPTP's Murowski promoted to VP slot

With guild negotiations coming into view, the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers has promoted key executive Diane Mirowski.

No dates have been set for contract talks. The Directors Guild of America, which named Michael Apted and Thomas Schlamme as its negotiating committee co-chairs in February, has usually gone first in recent negotiation cycles.

The AMPTP, which serves as the negotiating arm for the production companies, has given Mirowski her vice president stripes as VP of research and labor economics. She has served as the AMPTP’s director of labor economics since September, 2010.

Mirowski is responsible for collection and analysis of data and information for the negotiation and administration of more than 80 industry-wide collective bargaining agreements. “Her duties include researching trends in production and employment, analyzing proposals during negotiations and monitoring the funding status of industry pension and health plans,” the AMPTP said.

She also serves on board of trustees of the Screen Actors Guild–Producers Pension and Health Plans and on the bard of directors of the Motion Picture Industry Pension and Health Plans.

None of the three major unions — SAG-AFTRA, the DGA and the Writers Guild of America — have locked in a start date for negotiations for their successor deals to master contracts covering features and primetime TV. The WGA deal expires May 1 and the SAG-AFTRA and DGA deals both run out June 30.
