Actors Reach ‘Devastatingly Unsatisfactory’ Agreement with Studios
Posted on Jun 9, 2009
After a year of haggling (and not much to show for it), the Screen Actors Guild has agreed to a two-year contract with the major studios. SAG President Alan Rosenberg dismissed the deal as “devastatingly unsatisfactory.” So dramatic.
The SAG said the deal raised actors’ minimum pay by 3% as part of a $105m package of improvements.
But there appeared to be no significant pay increase for internet appearances - a key sticking point in the talks.
