Ad strike stalls agent talks

SAG-ATA negotiations postponed

Ongoing strike talks have forced the Screen Actors Guild to delay this week’s negotiations with talent agents over basic operating rules for tenpercenteries.

SAG had been scheduled to begin talks today in Los Angeles with the Assn. of Talent Agents to update the Rule 16(g) regulations governing agents. However, the meeting has been postponed due to SAG’s negotiators remaining in New York to hammer out details of a possible settlement with advertisers.

SAG and ATA met for two days earlier this month to review proposals. The ATA formally requested on April 20 that the entire agreement be put up for bargaining, opening a six-month window for negotiations.

Agents are seeking lifting of restrictions on allowing networks and studios to invest in agencies and vice versa, along with expanding the revenue streams on which agents can charge commissions. SAG is seeking enhanced protections for actors, such as allowing audits of records without prior notice and excluding gifts and bonuses from being commissioned.
