Negotiations are underway for SAG-AFTRA’s Network Code, which generates more than $200 million a year in earnings for members working on a wide range of non-primetime and syndicated shows including soap operas, game shows, talk, news, sports and reality shows. The current contract expires June 30.
The talks are being held in New York under a “news blackout for the duration of the talks,” the union said, noting that it “will have no further comment.”
Chief negotiators in the talks are David White, SAG-AFTRA’s national executive director, and Marc Sandman, SVP Labor Relations at Disney/ABC, on behalf of the networks and Sony’s TV production unit.
