Directors Guild, TV Networks Reach Accord

June 12, 2002|Bloomberg News

The Directors Guild of America has reached an agreement with ABC, CBS and NBC after six months of negotiation.

The guild's national board approved a three-year contract for its members that includes an annual 3% raise and provisions for diversity hiring.

The contract covers staff and freelance members who work in news, sports and operations at the television networks, the guild said in a statement.

The 3% raise is an across-the-board wage and fee increase each year for staff employees and freelance directors.

Also, freelance associate directors, stage managers and production associates will receive a wage increase of more than 7% over the three years.

CBS is owned by New York-based Viacom Inc. ABC is owned by Burbank-based Walt Disney Co. and NBC is owned by Fairfield, Conn.-based General Electric Co.
