The Future of SAG-AFTRA: Renewal Talks for 2024 Contract

The strikes from last summer, involving writers and actors, had a significant impact on the scripted television and movie industry. However, it is interesting to note that reality shows, variety series, and game shows were able to continue filming without interruption. This was all possible because these shows operate under a different contract known as the Network Television Code Contract.

SAG-AFTRA is now gearing up for renewal talks over its 2024 contract. The union has already started conducting meetings in preparation for the negotiations of a new contract. With the current contract set to expire on June 30, 2024, the pressure is on to come to agreements that benefit both parties involved. These talks come at a time of labor negotiations in Hollywood, as IATSE has also begun discussions over its own deal earlier this month.

Leading up to the renewal talks, SAG-AFTRA is encouraging singers, dancers, stunt performers, voiceover artists, and background actors to participate in a series of meetings. These meetings are crucial for developing proposals that reflect the needs and interests of the union members. The details of the upcoming meetings can be found on the union’s official website.

The Network Television Code Contract covers a wide range of programs, including non-dramatic shows, daytime serials, variety shows, quiz programs, game shows, reality TV, talk shows, news programs, sports programs, and promotional announcements. This contract played a vital role in ensuring that popular series such as The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, The Masked Singer, and Jeopardy! were able to continue production even during the strikes. The previous deal, approved in June 2022, reportedly generated over $200 million a year in covered earnings for SAG-AFTRA members.

The upcoming renewal talks for SAG-AFTRA’s 2024 contract are crucial for the future of its members and the industry as a whole. The union’s efforts to involve a diverse range of talent in the negotiation process and the positive impact of the Network Television Code Contract highlight the importance of collaboration and forward-thinking in the ever-evolving landscape of entertainment labor agreements.
