WGA, AMPTP Disagree Over Home Video Residuals During Contract Talks

Oct 10, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers hit another roadblock, with negotiators having left the bargaining table Oct. 9.
The WGA on Tuesday proposed an increase in home video residuals, from four cents per every $15 DVD to eight cents.
“This is far less than the cost of the box the DVD comes in,” said John F. Bowman, chair of the WGA negotiating committee.
In response, AMPTP president Nick Counter called the proposal “untenable,” saying it used “specious numbers, a revisionist view of the bargaining history and a complete disregard for the costs and deficits that producers must bear.”
Talks will resume today at 1:30 p.m. PDT.
The WGA’s current contract expires Oct. 31.
