Covid 19 Motion Picture Return To Work Agreement
Updated On: Dec 07, 2020
After months of negotiations, the IATSE Locals, DGA, Teamsters and SAG-AFTRA have reached agreement with the producers. Attached to this message please find the complete Agreement and a separate Summary document. This is meant to be a living document and contains an Enabling Clause which requires the parties to meet one month and then every two months following, to make additions, tweaks, and changes. The Agreement currently goes thru April 2021.
As you read through this, and more importantly return to work with these protocols, we hope you will take note of Covid-19 protocols and procedures that don't work or which are not addressed in the Agreement. Please pass on notes, suggestions and comments to your Business Agents, so that we can address these concerns with the International.
This Agreement supercedes any and all Covid-19 Health & Safety Plans & protocols developed by the studios/producers.
Highlights and big wins in the Agreement are:
$250 stipend for testing on non-work day
Defintion of the Zones and Testing
Up to 10 days of Paid Sick Leave and benefit payments per employer for eligible Covid events
