SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood Producers Reach Tentative Deal on Animation Contracts

The 3-year agreements now go to the union’s national board for approval

The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) have reached tentative agreement for new contracts covering animated production, the two sides said Wednesday.

Negotiations, which lasted four days and concluded on Tuesday, resulted in a new 2014 SAG-AFTRA TV Animation Agreement and SAG-AFTRA Basic Cable Animation Agreement. The terms of the new agreements weren’t immediately disclosed, but will be presented to the SAG-AFTRA National Board of Directors on October 12.

The animation agreement comes a little more than two weeks after SAG-AFTRA members voted overwhelmingly to approve the 2014 TV/Theatrical Contracts. Members approved new three-year contracts covering theatrical, primetime, and basic cable television production under the 2014 SAG-AFTRA Codified Basic Agreement and the 2014 SAG-AFTRA Television Agreement.

The Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America also reached new three-year deals with the AMPTP earlier this year.
