AFTRA announces new contract agreement

HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 10 (UPI) — One of Hollywood’s major television unions announced it had reached agreement on a new labor contract that includes a 6-percent pay increase.

The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists said Friday night the new pact also includes an increase in employer contributions to health and retirement funds, and will be in effect until late 2014 if approved by the membership.

AFTRA represents a wide range of on-air talent and has more than 70,000 members.

The Los Angeles Times said the deal replaces the previous contract that expired last month and had been extended for one year.
