Actra Ubisoft Agreement

Actra Ubisoft Agreement

Interpreter fatigue on film and television sets in Canada is also addressed in a side letter in the new API. Under the new agreement, actors can now, at the end of the working day, flag to a producer that they are too tired to go home, and it is up to the producer to provide the actor with alternative ways to get home. This could include, for example, placing them in a hotel room, offering transportation to a nearby transit stop, or letting them go home by someone else. The updated deal, which was extended from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, involves a 1.5 percent increase in minimum royalties for Canadian artists, according to a press release. The current agreements expired on June 30 and this increase is retroactive to July 1, 2020. Sparrow has been a member of ACTRA for 27 years and was President of ACTRA Toronto from 2013 to this year and a member of ACTRA National Councillor since 2007. As a member of ACTRA`s negotiating committees during several rounds of negotiations, David has played an active role in improving conditions for ACTRA members working under the National Trade Agreement, the Independent Production Agreement and agreements with video game developer Ubisoft. ACTRA members have ratified the Canadian National Union and CBC`s agreement to extend existing radio and television contracts by one year. “As our industry begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the parties have agreed to extend our CBC radio and television contracts by one year and include terms that will bring benefits to our ACTRA players,” MARIE Kelly, Executive Director of ACTRA National, said in a statement. “This agreement balances the needs and interests of our members with the interests of the sector. I am grateful to our members for their confidence in the negotiating team and for ratifying the agreements. In addition, the new IAP provides for a 9% increase in rates over the three-year period of the new agreement, as well as an increase in work opportunities for performers by completing the Performer Count background.

“The work we`ve done in the industry has even started to go beyond what our [current] contract has talked about, and when we partnered with the CMPA and AQPM, we found that they were very open to discussing changes within the contract that would bring some of these agreements [of the code of conduct],” he said. . ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) is the National Association of Professional Artists Working in English-Language Recorded Media in Canada. ACTRA represents the interests of 23,000 members across the country, the foundation of Canada`s highly vaunted professional community. David`s career has taken him from stage to film and television and from performance to writing, producing and directing. With over 100 credits of Canadian and American film and television and extensive experience in commercials and animations, David is at home in front of the camera or behind the microphone. He is proud of the ACTRA Canadian Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA. “The positive ground we`ve created in terms of harassment issues and the positive dialogue that has happened on both sides is probably the lasting legacy of this round of contract negotiations and I think it will help advance the culture, as we want to do across the industry,” Sparrow said. . . .
