New tour pact for Equity, B’way League

Union ratifies four-year agreement

Touring thesps and stage managers will get raises and boosted per diems as part of a new four-year agreement between Actors Equity Association and the Broadway League.

Newly ratified by actors’ union Equity, the latest edition of the Short Engagement Touring Agreement will see the minimum salary rise around 10% over the course of the deal, which will last four years.

Also among the changes on the docket: Per diem increases, plus, starting next year, upticks in the overage agreements governing additional coin paid out to Equity members based on net gross.

The SET deal was initially formalized in 2008 to win back touring jobs that otherwise would have gone to non-Equity actors and stage managers.  Among the criteria for qualifying for SET (vs. the full production contract) is the stipulation that most stops on a given tour must be one week or less.

According to Equity, 30 tours have gone out under the SET agreement since it was established in 2008, including “Anything Goes,” “Les Miserables” and “Flashdance.”
