ACTRA walks from negotiations

TORONTO, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ – After two days of meetings and having only exchanged proposals, negotiations seem to have stalled with ACTRA’s decision to walk away from any further talks.

The Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) and the Association de producteurs de films et de télévision du Québec (APFTQ) respect the bargaining process and are committed to working within accepted bargaining guidelines, with all Unions and Guilds, to build a stronger industry.

"Unfortunately, at this time ACTRA has indicated that they are not willing to engage in an open and frank dialogue with regard to their concerns with our proposals." Says Guy Mayson, President & CEO, CFTPA. "CFTPA/APFTQ has repeatedly expressed our readiness to discuss and explain the rationale of our proposals with ACTRA, and its membership. Meaningful progress can only take place at the bargaining table; the producers’ associations are not interested in bargaining through the media."

"If ACTRA is serious about getting a deal, we suggest that they get back to the bargaining table as soon as possible" says John Barrack, chief negotiator for the CFTPA.

The current collective agreement between the CFTPA/APFTQ and ACTRA expires on December 31, 2006.
