Area Standards Negotiations

A new three-year Area Standards Agreement was negotiated covering theatrical and television motion picture production.  This contract was first negotiated in an effort to standardize terms, wages and benefits depending on geographic areas when productions were not otherwise covered by the Hollywood Basic Agreement or New York Locals’ contracts.  Despite contentious negotiations, the new three-year contract includes numerous economic improvements and protective terms.   Especially significant were terms applying to crewmembers traveling and working in distant locations.
