The Screen Actors Guild national board of directors today voted overwhelmingly to recommend a successor agreement to the 2006 "Basic Cable Live Action Agreement."

The board, by a 95% to 5% count, recommends an agreement, covering dramatic television motion pictures, excluding animated television motion pictures, produced for initial exhibition on a basic-cable service, which would expire concurrently with the "TV-Theatrical' agreement on June 30, 2010. That pact was ratified in June.

The tentative agreement includes effective annual increases of 3.0% in year one and 3.5% in year two in wage increases and .5% in pension contributions upon ratification.

Other terms match the terms of the recently approved TV/Theatrical agreement.
