Separate negotiations for the local’s contract with the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP) are expected to begin in the fall. In the meantime, Local 399 is in the process of negotiating revised Covid-19 safety protocols with the commercials industry and the AICP, which do not currently provide for mandatory vaccinations.

Commercial Producers Agree To Covid Testing In New Pact With DGA, IATSE & TeamstersUnder the recently renegotiated film and TV protocols between the AMPTP and the unions – SAG-AFTRA, the DGA, IATSE, the Teamsters and the Basic Crafts – mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations on film and TV productions now will be allowed, on a restricted basis. The new protocols, they said in a joint statement, will give producers “the option to implement mandatory vaccination policies for casts and crew in Zone A on a production-by-production basis.” Zone A, where unmasked actors work, is the most restrictive of the safe work zones on sets.

Those return-to-work discussions, Dayan wrote, had been “difficult,” but noted that that while “no agreement is perfect,” he believes that “our members will understand the need for this Local to protect the health and safety of our members, as well as protecting our jobs.”
