SAG-AFTRA to Cover Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Tour Dancers

Performers covered by union's touring agreement

In a precedent-setting deal, Justin Timberlake and SAG-AFTRA have agreed for the dozen dancers on his 20/20 Experience World Tour to be covered by the union’s touring agreement.

The union noted that the Timberlake deal represents the first time that member performers have successfully organized dancers employed on a specific tour under its touring agreement, which was previously utilized to cover touring back-up singers for James Taylor, Reba McIntire, Martina McBride, Blues Traveler, Josh Groban and Jefferson Starship.

The pact provides for performer earnings counting toward pension and health benefits eligibility and for direct negotiations with performers.

SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard said in a statement: “This is a wonderful result for SAG-AFTRA members and Justin Timberlake. Justin was very open to signing the agreement and personally making sure the deal got done. As a leading recording artist and actor, Justin’s support for his fellow SAG-AFTRA members in unionizing his tour was a key element in concluding this agreement. I thank him for taking the lead.”

The tour’s next stop takes place Tuesday at Staples Center and has dates scheduled into August.
