Producer-talent falling-out finished?

Briefs | 03/01/2007 5:00 am EST

Just in time for its annual Prime Time event, the Canadian Film and Television Production Association and its francophone counterpart, the Association des producteurs de films et de télévision du Québec, announced they had settled a six-week spat with the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists on February 21. The new Independent Production Agreement (IPA) governing relations between Canadian producers and on-screen talent includes a 10% raise over three years for actors and performers, as well as a share of 3.6% of revenues when a work is adapted for the Internet. Other provisions contained in the new IPA include revised work rules governing equal opportunities, harassment, child performances, and working conditions on set, as well as a move to harmonize rules for the number of background performers hired for a production. While the pay increases take effect immediately, the rest of the three-year agreement is still subject to ratification.
