‘Survivor’ Post-Production Editors End Strike

Post-production editors on “Survivor” have ended their one-day strike after the production company agreed to their demand for union recognition.

The editors, who had walked off their jobs on Wednesday, announced that they would return to their jobs Thursday. Contract talks have been scheduled for Friday.

The strike was launched against Mark Burnett’s Island Post Prods. Inc. — less than six weeks before the premiere of the CBS reality show’s 29th season on Sept. 24.

CBS declined to comment. Reps for Burnett had no immediate comment.

Burnett’s company was notified on Tuesday of the editors‘  intent to seek a union contract with health and retirement benefits. The editors had asked for immediate negotiations through Local 700 of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

The crew had noted that for each episode in the series, it edits approximately 250 hours of raw footage down to one hour for broadcast. It also said the series has received a total of 16 Emmy nominations in the category of picture editing for a reality series.
