SAG-AFTRA Extends Contracts for Corporate, Non-Broadcast, Education

Deal covers work for PR, sales promotion, training films

With negotiations looming for its primetime-feature contract, SAG-AFTRA has agreed to a one-year extension of its contracts for corporate, non-broadcast and educational work.

The extension, which leaves the contract terms intact, was ratified Oct. 1 by the union’s national board. The AFTRA and SAG corporate/educational and non-broadcast contracts, which were jointly negotiated in April, 2011, were set to expire next April 30.

“With the coming negotiations for the TV/Theatrical contract, the extension gives the union more time to prepare and gives members more opportunity to be involved in the run-up to the next negotiation,” SAG-AFTRA said.

The union is planning to launch its master contract talks with the studios in the spring and has set its first official step with the “wages and working conditions” meetings dated for Jan. 27 and March 14.  The union has not set a timetable for its negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on a successor deal to its contract covering features and primetime TV, which expires June 30.

The Corporate/Educational and Non-Broadcast Contracts cover PR, sales promotion and training films made for initial use to the general public, schools, conventions, seminars, museums, in retail stores and for Internet use. “We are hoping to bring a renewed focus to bear on bringing more work under this agreement,” said SAG-AFTRA’s contracts exec Ray Rodriguez.

Member earnings under the two contracts totaled about $16.4 million last year.
