The AMPTP made this announcement today. But I’m hearing from casting directors that they haven’t been made privy to what was negotiated or even asked for in the negotiations. It is to be presented at a membership meeting next week.

Statement of the AMPTP
The AMPTP and International Brotherhood of Teamsters have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract for the industry’s Casting Directors and Casting Associates. Bargaining concluded last night after three days of negotiations. The Casting Director agreement is the fifth labor pact negotiated by the Producers so far this year and, along with four major Guild agreements with AFTRA, WGA and DGA, the latest indication that our industry is now back to work.
