Actor Strike Called Off in New York

Posted on July 2, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW YORK CITY – Wary of reprising a crippling strike that shut down most Broadway shows last year, Broadway producers and Actors' Equity Association this morning announced a tentative 39-month labor agreement. The theater agreement was disclosed in a joint statement by the actors' union and the Broadway League, representing producers and theater owners. It covers shows that play in New York and tour around the U.S. Terms will be disclosed later today, the statement said.

In November, Broadway stagehands struck for 19 days, more than three months after their contract expired, shuttering most shows. They eventually agreed to more flexibility in work rules in exchange for pay increases that total 4.5% in the first year of a five-year agreement.

The actors' talks have been less tense. They reached their agreement just three days after their old contract lapsed.

The new agreement contrasts the situation on the West Coast, where Hollywood actors remain in a negotiations stalemate with producers over television and movie work. On June 30, Hollywood studios made what they called a final offer to the Screen Actors Guild. A sticking point is DVD revenue and payment for shows on the Internet.
