On April 3, 2016 the “SAG-AFTRA 2016 Commercials Contract” and “Audio Recorded Commercials Contract” negotiations were concluded between SAG-AFTRA and the Joint Policy Committee (JPC). The new rates have now been approved, verified and ratified by both parties.
These new rates are effective retroactively as of April 01, 2016 and payments will be due no later than 30 days from May 10, 2016.
There are many new and revised provisions to be reviewed. The JPC is in the midst of holding a series of regional Town Hall meetings in order to answer questions from the advertising community.
