Post-production crew members on CBS’s “Survivor” are returning to work after a short strike, with Mark Burnett’s Island Post Productions agreeing to give the crew union recognition, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“Contract talks have been scheduled for Friday. In the meantime, our strike action has been suspended, and ‘Survivor’ post-production employees will return to their jobs on Thursday,” the Motion Picture Editors Guild said Wednesday on its Facebook page.
It added, “Our picket line will stand down until further notice. Please do not report for picket duty tomorrow. Kudos to the crew of ‘Survivor’ for their resolve they showed today and this important victory.”
As previously reported, the post-production crew walked off the job Wednesday after editors of the CBS reality show demanded union contracts. The strike came as CBS readies “Survivor” for its 29th cycle, set to debut Sept. 24, and a delay of even a few days could have impacted that airdate.
