Actors’ Equity enters three-year deal

Pact ups thesps' salaries, health insurance

Thesp union Actors’ Equity and the Assn. of Non-Profit Theater Companies have struck a new three-year deal that ups both salaries and health insurance payments for actors.

Effective today, the deal raises minimum weekly salaries (currently pegged between $265 and $441, depending on a theater’s category) by 4% in year one and by 3% each year over the subsequent two years. Stage managers and their assistants will receive the same increases.

Weekly payments made by producers into the Equity-League Health Trust Fund also will increase incrementally, from the current $155 to $193 by the end of the third year.

Meanwhile, average weekly box office ranges, which determine a theater’s category for the agreement, were raised by 5%.

Off Broadway orgs that use the ANTC agreement include the Atlantic, Classic Stage, MCC, the New Group, Primary Stages, Signature, the Vineyard and the Women’s Project. The York Theater also has recently been approved for the agreement.
