Independent Commercial Producers, IATSE Reach Accord

Three-year deal goes into effect Oct. 1

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the Association of Independent Commercial Producers have reached a three-year successor deal covering technicians and artists who create commercials.

The agreement was reached more than four months before the current pact expires on Sept. 30. In a joint announcement, the producers group and the union said they had agreed to early negotiations to promote stability and give both sides an opportunity to plan and budget past the expiration.

“We recognized the value of early negotiations when both sides are willing to address the important issues and provide stability to the members of the IA and the commercial producers,” IATSE president Matthew Loeb said in a statement.

Details were not disclosed. The issues discussed included wages and benefits, training, safety, overtime, long work days, non-traditional commercials and low budget commercials.

“The industry is changing and it is important that as we see new opportunities that come with new challenges, we can work with the skilled crew base we have always relied on in new and progressive ways,” said Matt Miller, president and CEO of AICP. “Our open and frank discussions centered around this theme.”

The new agreement will become effective Oct. 1 and run through Sept. 30, 2016.
