Carol Lombardini-led AMPTP are expected to make the agreement public very shortly.“It took a lot to get here, but this is a good deal, a fair deal for everyone concerned,” an individual close to the sometimes strained negotiations told Deadline once all the final contract language was agreed on Saturday. “Time to break out the cigars,” the individual added

The AMPTP had wanted to settle the rate increase at around 3% for the first year and then shift it down to 2.5% or even less for the subsequent two years of the contract.

With many of the larger issues resolved late this week, today’s talks saw IATSE and the AMPTP going over several smaller-but-vital matters, we hear. Once that was settled, the administrative component had to be dealt with, as the deal was actually typed up for all to look over one final time.

Though the tentative deal was reached before the deadline this weekend, and things actually really started coming together midday Friday, the situation remained in a state of flux almost right up to the final hours.

Whew! Dozens of people might have been deprived of whatever it is these folks do had the strike not been averted. “This is a Hollywood ending...and we have now reached an agreement with the AMPTP that meets our members’ needs.” SAYS THE MAN WHO MAKES $500,000 A YEAR, WAS NEVER ELECTED, and PROBABLY HAS NEVER WORKED EVEN A TEN HOUR DAY IN HIS ENTIRE TENURE. 😡😡😡

AZFilmFest Oh thank god!!! I was about to lose my entire shit. It hasn't been ratified yet, it will not pass a vote. Strike not averted, just pushed. Waiting till it's actually ratified by union members per the Union's process. 🗑 deal. the capeshit must flow 10hr turn around ... Film!!! We’ll see what the details are, but it looks to me like what we already had maybe with the exception of jettisoning the streaming deals. Seems like the AMPTP low-balled and successfully fought off the improvements in quality of life conditions the membership really wanted.
