Casting directors, producers reach tentative deal with AMPTP


Negotiators for casting directors and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers agreed on a proposed contract 9/2. The union will bring it to members for a vote on 9/15. No specifics of the proposal are yet available because members won’t see it until the ratification meeting. The tentative agreement covers about 500 people in New York and LA.

If casting directors agree, it will be their third collective bargaining agreement. The current contract began in September, 2008 and expires on September 30.

Casting directors are represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 399.
