The deal — which covers more than 3,000 active members — was reached Wednesday night following three days of bargaining. If ratified by members, the successor deal will run from Aug. 1 to July 31, 2018.
The guild, which operates as Local 839 of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, said the new deal follows the contours of the 2015 Iatse Hollywood Basic Agreement including a 3% annual increase to wage minimums; unchanged health benefits; 10% increases in pension benefits for individuals retiring after Aug. 1; an updated New Media Side Letter that conforms to new-media deals negotiated by SAG‐AFTRA, DGA, WGA and the Iatse in earlier negotiations.
The deal also includes higher health and pension contributions for freelance storyboard artists and timing directors.
