SAG-AFTRA and NPR Reach Contract Deal

National Public Radio and SAG-AFTRA have reached a tentative agreement on terms for a two-year successor deal to the network’s master contract.

The new contract, the terms of which were not disclosed, must still be ratified by NPR employees represented by SAG-AFTRA, the Local Executive Board and the National Executive Committee.  The negotiating team is unanimously recommending approval.

“NPR and SAG-AFTRA, the union representing NPR’s newsroom and other on-air related employees, have reached a tentative agreement that NPR has approved and SAG-AFTRA will recommend to its members. SAG-AFTRA members will have an opportunity to vote to ratify the agreement in the coming weeks,” NPR and the union said in a joint email Monday. “Both sides look forward to working together in a continued spirit of cooperation.”

The tentative agreement was reached on July 1.

SAG-AFTRA also represents public media professionals at KPCC in  Pasadena, Calif., KQED in San Francisco, WNYC in New York, KPLU in Seattle, KPBS in San Diego and Chicago Public Media, including WBEZ.
