SAG/AFTRA delays talks deadline

Published on .

The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists have extended their contract negotiation deadline to mid-April from March 31, in a dispute between commercial actors and the advertising industry. One point of disagreement is that the Association of National Advertisers and the American Association of Advertising Agencies, representing advertisers, want to pay actors a fixed fee for a single network commercial no matter how many times it airs. Previously, the ANA agreement paid actors a fee for each spot's airing of a commercial.
