SAG-AFTRA Reaches Agreement Covering Music Video Performers

SAG-AFTRA has announced that it had reached a tentative agreement with the major record labels--Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and Disney Music Group--for a successor to their industry-wide contract covering dancers and other performers on music videos. The original agreement was approved in June 2012.

The new two-year agreement was reached in the early evening hours of April 20. The first round of talks between the union and label representatives began on Dec. 6, 2016, in Los Angeles with successive rounds in February and April.

Details of the agreement will not be released until it was reviewed by the SAG-AFTRA National Board at its regularly scheduled meeting April 22 - 23.
