SAG-AFTRA 2013 Commercials Contracts-Ratified/Rate Charts Available

The ANA-4A’s Joint Policy Committee (JPC) is pleased to announce that the membership of the Screen Actors Guild—American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) have voted affirmatively to ratify the new 2013-2016 Commercials Contracts. Overall, the membership of SAG-AFTRA voted 96.21 percent in favor of the new agreements. These contracts are a result of the successful collective bargaining negotiations recently concluded between SAG-AFTRA and the JPC on behalf of the advertising industry.

As a reminder, the effective date for any retroactive payments due to performers for compensation under these contracts as well as implementation of new working conditions and other non-economic provisions is no later than June 30, 2013.

As the next step in the process, new 2013–2016 Compensation Rate Sheets, Tables and other supplemental rate-based materials have been drafted, verified and agreed to by the industry and the union.
