AFTRA, Broadcast Nets To Begin New CBA Negotiations Nov. 7

Publish date:

The American Federation of Television & Radio Artists, the union representing more than 70,000 performers, recording artists and broadcasters, says it will begin negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement with the broadcast nets and studios starting Nov. 7.

The current agreement expires Nov. 15, but will be extended through the duration of the negotiations on a day-to-day basis, according toAFTRA.

The group will be negotiating -- with producers -- the successor agreement to the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting, which covers everything but scripted primetime on the broadcast nets, which is covered by a separate agreement.

The negotiations will be held at the offices of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
