AFTRA Delays Negotiations Again as SAG, Producers Keep Talking

May 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists pushed the start date for its negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers again, as the AMPTP and the Screen Actors Guild continue their separate contract negotiations.
AFTRA agreed last week to postpone its negotiations until May 5. It now will begin negotiations on May 7, at the request of SAG and the producers, AFTRA said.
SAG and the producers announced today the organizations are extending their negotiations on a day-by-day basis until May 6. Talks originally were set to conclude today.
Both of the actors unions’ contracts with the AMPTP are set to expire in June.
AFTRA announced Wednesday that a deal was struck in separate talks with the producers over non-prime-time broadcast shows that AFTRA represents, including “Saturday Night Live” and “Entertainment Tonight.”
That three-year deal includes pay increases up to 3.5% for performers and revised terms for new-media material.
