Negotiations Update: Talks Continue Between IATSE And the AMPTP Following A Week of Basic Agreement General Negotiations

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) completed the first week of Basic Agreement General Negotiations on Friday.

Talks with employers on the Basic Agreement restarted on April 29 and are scheduled to remain ongoing through May 16. These negotiations cover issues like wage increases, pension and health contributions, artificial intelligence (AI), quality of life conditions, job security and residuals.

Teamsters and other Basic Crafts unions were at the table with IATSE from Monday through Wednesday to address the shared benefit plans before negotiations shifted to working conditions proposals on Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile on Friday, IATSE published a video (available below) that highlights the power of union solidarity and collective bargaining.
