ACTRA sets strike deadline

TORONTO – In a unanimous vote, ACTRA’s negotiating committee has set a strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. Monday, January 8, 2007. Producers were given notices to this effect as last-ditch talks resumed this morning.

“ACTRA wants to avoid a strike. We’re going to try hard this week to negotiate a new agreement. But the producers’ associations must not underestimate our determination to ensure that it is a fair agreement,” stated Stephen Waddell, ACTRA’s National Executive Director and Chief Negotiator.

ACTRA received an overwhelming 97.6% strike mandate from its membership in December.

“Canadian performers will not see their wages eroded and will not be giving away their work on the internet for free,” said Waddell.

If no agreement is arrived at this week, ACTRA will be striking against producers in most of Canada except British Columbia. The many producers who have signed continuation letters with ACTRA will not be involved in this action.
