SAG Proposed Contract Reactions

Ballot on the tentative Theatrical Agreement has begun to arrive, and among the materials included:

  1. $0 residuals & $0 P&H contribution for original SAG shows made for new media (unless >$25,000/minute budget).
  2. New contract does not raise pay 3% as claimed; it only keeps up with inflation since 2007 (Dept. of Labor data)

Others point out that all TV can be sent over the net and labeled new media, effectively ending residuals.

On Thursday, SAG had a meeting discussing the new Theatrical Contract and Nikki Finke's coverage is good.

Disclosure: I am both a SAG Actor and a SAG signatory producer.
