H’wood skeds runaway meet

DGA, SAG, AFTRA, WGA, IATSE, Teamsters invited to confab

HOLLYWOOD — Studios and Hollywood unions have rescheduled for next week a first-ever meeting to discuss ways of putting the brakes on runaway production, including perhaps agreeing to contract concessions.

Confab has been set for Thursday, resulted from the DGA’s recent ratification of its three-year contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers. That pact included an agreement to bring together the AMPTP and the unions to address “possible contract remedies.”

Invites to the event, to be held at AMPTP headquarters in Encino, have gone out to leaders of DGA, SAG, AFTRA, WGA, IATSE and the Teamsters. The session is likely to focus on examining the causes of runaway production.

The unions have come out strongly in favor of pending federal and state wage-based tax credit legislation aimed at keeping low-budget projects in the U.S.
