SAG-AFTRA Reaches Deal on Corporate and Educational Films

SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative agreement with producers for a three-year agreement covering work in corporate/educational films and non-broadcast recorded material.

The agreement combines the legacy SAG and AFTRA contracts as a result of the merger in March 2012 that created a union of about 160,000 members. The legacy contracts were jointly negotiated in 2011 and set to expire April 30.

The contract covers public relations, sales promotion and training films made for initial use to the general public, schools, conventions, seminars, museums, in retail stores and for Internet use. It also covers audio-only content such as telephone messages and audio used in consumer products.

The new agreement includes a 3% increase immediately in minimum compensation and a 3% increase on Nov. 1, 2016. The agreement also includes a 0.5% increase to the employer contribution rate to the Health & Retirement Funds on the first day of the new contract, along with a 3% hike in the first year.

SAG-AFTRA also achieved gains for background actors in salary and wardrobe fees. The tentative agreement will go before the national board for approval at its April 18-19 meeting.
