Advertisers, actors extend terms of deal

August 28, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Hollywood's actors unions have agreed with advertisers to extend again their contract covering appearances and voice-overs in commercials.

The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists will continue to work through March 31 under a contract that expires Oct. 29. The contract already had been extended two years.

The decision was expected because SAG has yet to conclude negotiations with the studios on a new film and TV contract to replace the one that expired June 30.

Additionally, SAG and AFTRA may not be ready to set aside their differences and negotiate jointly, given the history of sparring between the unions.
