Post-production editors on “Survivor” have ratified a contract with Mark Burnett’s Island Post Prods. Inc., a day after negotiators reached a tentative deal.
The new agreement for about 30 editors provides full health and pension benefits, an eight-hour day, a 40-hour work week with time and half after eight hours and double time after 12 hours.
The deal will be retroactive to the start of work on the 29th season of “Survivor,” which begins airing Sept. 24 on CBS.
The editors are repped by Local 700 of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
The crew struck for a day on Aug. 14, leading to Island Post agreeing to the negotiations. The crew asserted that for each episode in the series, it edits approximately 250 hours of raw footage down to one hour for broadcast.
