Casting directors set negotiations

Teamsters Local 399 will start talks next week

Hollywood’s casting directors have set contract negotiations with production companies for three days beginning Sept. 5, less than a month before their current contract expires.

Casting directors ratified a one-year successor contract last September following negotiations between the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers and Local 399 of the Intl. Brotherhood of Teamsters. That pact, which expires Sept. 30, included a 2% hike in minimums along with gains in employer pension and health contributions.

Contract covers about 500 casting directors and associates in Hollywood and New York. The Teamsters were able to obtain the first union contract in 2005 for casting directors following an organizing campaign that lasted three years.

Earlier this month, location managers and scouts repped by the Teamsters ratified a three-year deal with production companies on a successor contract covering about 600 employees in the Western states. In July, about 3,000 Hollywood Teamster drivers and four other basic craft unions ratified a three-year successor pact.
