AICP-New Commercial Production Agreement

Negotiations concluded in late July 2004 and involved the International’s Multi-State Supplemental Agreement with the AICP.  Locals 600, 798, and 161 agreed to be included in the IATSE-AICP Agreement and the Locals’ bargaining rights were given to the International.  The special conditions attained by these three Locals over many years are preserved in the new agreement.

The new contract has, for the first time, a meaningful notification provision.  Payroll records must be made available to the Union.  The Marine Department has been recognized.  A low budget definition has been established.

Check-off has, for the first time, been established by contract for all crafts and locals.  Meal penalties track the Hollywood Basic Agreement.

Wages have been increased by 3% per year plus a one-time additional 2% for the Wardrobe Department to help alleviate past inequities.  The contract drafting has been complicated, but the documents are near completion and signing is expected to take place within the next few weeks.
