As you may know, IATSE will negotiate it’s next three year Area Standards Agreement starting in July of 2018. Ahead of this, they will have planning sessions which will be attended by our Business Agents, Charlie Carlson and Robert Riggs. We are soliciting member input that Charlie and Bobby will use to inform their suggestions at these planning meetings.
The ASA contract covers medium to large budget movie and TV work. It is separate from the Low Budget Tier 0-4 Contracts and the Commercial Contract.
Please send your suggestions to one of the email addresses listed below. You may send to any of the addresses, although we would prefer you contact the committee member associated with your geographic area.
Although we welcome original ideas, please remember the committee and BAs will have to distill these suggestions down to practical negotiating points. The contract will probably remain mostly the same and undergo incremental changes, as it has for many cycles. It is helpful to phrase your suggestions in a “Problem: Solution” format, identifying a particular problem or abuse that has occurred on ASA shows and a specific solution. It is even better if you can identify which paragraphs of the existing contract should be changed. The ASA contract is available on our website, iatse488.org under the tab IATSE CONTRACTS/1099 INFO > CONTRACTS > AREA STANDARDS AGREEMENT
