Studios reach location deal

AMPTP pact increases workers' base salary

About 450 Teamsters-repped location scouts, managers and assistants have ratified a three-year contract with studios.

Deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers has an effective date of Aug. 1 and includes base salary increases.

“We are very pleased about the terms,” said Steve Dayan, business agent for Local 399.

Location scouts and managers are among the first below-the-line crew members to be hired on many feature and TV projects.

Disney is the only major studio that has not signed a contract with the local.
