Hooray! We have a SAG deal.

Wow! I am so grateful to have been part of the DGA negotiating committee and NOT the SAG group.  What a brutal holiday weekend all the negotiating teams had.  At least we got a deal, and our industry can continue unabated.

We have new editions for many of our Cleve Movie Tools.  Most important for those in an immediate crunch, we can provide you with new Hollywood Tools with SAG rates calculated for the 2.5% increase just now in effect (these will work for your budgeting).  It may be up to a month before we get published rates from SAG.

Please take note that as of July 1, Los Angeles has a new minimum wage of $12.00 in effect.  

As you know, the new SAG-AFTRA and DGA rates went into effect July 1.  On July 30, the new IATSE and Teamster rates for Hollywood also go into effect.  All new editions of Cleve Movie Tools include the the newly published rates for DGA, WGA, IATSE and Teamsters. When SAG publishes their new rates, we will add them to the Tools.

Noteworthy Fringes Info: DGA, WGA and SAG have fringe increases that add 0.5% to Pension.  We have updated this as well.  Still looking for details on SAG’s 0.2% fringe increase for monitoring animal rights, safety, and sexual harassment.

Cleve Movie Tools

New editions include all the Hollywood Tools, Area Standards and New York.  Vancouver was updated in April.  SAG rates are calculated and not from published rates.  See our Cleve Movie Tools page for details on each Tool.

Hope you had a great 4th of July!

Now get back to work...
