Travel

- First class hotel accommodations

- Ground transportation provided while out of town    

- Round trip airfare ( if traveling by plane)

Auditions, rehearsals and hazard pay for live shows must adhere to the rules listed under music video standard working conditions

What Constitutes Hazard Pay:

The following shall be deemed hazardous.

- In all instances, dancing on concrete shall be deemed hazardous.

- Dancing on slippery surfaces, dancing in inclement weather, out-of-season clothing or in costuming which by virtue of its fit or nature may subject the dancer to physical injury or health hazard.

- If choreography includes lifts, throws, catches, falls, etc., dancers shall not be required to perform "full out" (performance level) in rehearsal more than three times per hour or more than five times in each two hour period.

- When a dancer is required to perform complex aerial acrobatics, wire flying, or knee work (dancing, sliding, or doing a routine on the knees) without pads; support more than one other person in any manner which affects safe performance of the dance routine; dance under conditions where safe performance of the routine is affected because sight or breathing is impaired (use of mask or presence of fog, smoke, or fire, etc).

- Aerial work, parkour, free running, tricking, head spins.

- Jumping or leaping from a trampoline or similar devise.

- Performing as an aerialist with harness.

- Questionable surfaces such as visqueen, sand, rock, carpet, and Marley.

- Wearing gear not designed specifically for pedestrian or dance use (scuba fins, skis/ski boots, water footwear, etc).

- Using or being in the close proximity to special effects including, but not limited to weapons, fire or pyrotechnic devices.

- When a dancer's support is dependent upon any mechanical devices, props or sets that are not secure.

Hazard Rates:

For non-union work, hazard rates are equal to 25% of the minimum daily rate (for example, on a 12-hour music video shoot, it is $137.50). For extra performers, there is no hazard pay.  

Please remember what hazard pay is designed for.

Hazard pay is one of, if not, the most abused protections in both union and non-union contracts. If a producer engages a performer in legitimate hazardous activity, they pay that minimal fee in order to require the performer to perform such activity.  Hazard pay in no way excuses a performer from such work.  If you feel that the work you are being asked to do is a threat to your physical well-being or to the future of your physical well-being, pursue this fee or remember that you always have the right to refuse to engage in such action if you feel irreversible damage to the reputation of dancers on sets.  Please know what you are asking for when you ask for hazard pay.  Losing a job or future work is probably not worth the fee.  Be legitimate in your claim.  Realize, if the producer pays for you to do it, they expect to see it over and over again.

Don't Forget Stunt Work:

It is a good idea to know all aspects of a union contract, but one especially is the stunt work section.  Some of the work that dancers pursue as hazard may, in fact, be stunt work.  This work is principal and is usually above scale.  Educate yourself on these guidelines.

Read more

The union is continually developing innovative solutions to address challenges the advertising industry is facing. We now have a successor agreement that modernizes the Commercials Contracts and are pleased to introduce the Upfront Use Packages that specifically address these concerns.


Four available use packages:


Upfront Plus / Upfront Flex / Upfront Digital / Audio Flex


* EFFECTIVE JUNE 1, 2019


Upfront Plus:


A one-time payment to principal performers:

- On-Camera = $20,000.00
- Off-Camera = $15,000.00


Includes up to 10 Class A uses and unlimited use in all other media.


Beginning with the 11th Class A use, on-camera performers would receive $100.00 per use, and off-camera performers would receive $75.00 per use for the remainder of the maximum period of use (MPU).


New editing rules apply.


Exclusivity – added to the session and use payments:


- First non-competitive product requires an additional 25% of all compensation (scale + 25%)
- Second non-competitive product requires an additional 15% of all compensation (scale + 40%)
- Third non-competitive product requires an additional 10% of all compensation (scale + 50%)
- If there are over three non-competitive products then 200% of all compensation is due

One-year MPU

Upfront Flex:


For a one-year MPU, principal performers are paid an upfront guarantee:


- On-camera = $8,000.00
- Off-camera = $6,000.00


Each use type has a set rate for each 13-week use. The rates for an on-camera performer:


- All Cable and Local Cable: $3,400.00
- All Wild Spot and Local Cable: $2,000.00
- All Digital (includes Internet, New Media, OTT such as Hulu): $1,300.00
- All Spanish Language: $2,000.00
- All Other Domestic Use (includes Industrial, Dealer, Unwired, Diginets, Class B and Class C): $1,000.00
- Class A: $100.00 per use
- Foreign Use for English and Spanish regions is paid at 60% of the traditional contract rate


Use rates are deducted from the guarantee. Once the guarantee is exhausted, the performer shall be paid for all use from that point forward.


New editing rules apply.


Exclusivity – applies to the session and 13-week use payments, not the guarantee:


- First non-competitive product requires an additional 25% of all compensation (scale + 25%)
- Second non-competitive product requires an additional 15% of all compensation (scale + 40%)
- Third non-competitive product requires an additional 10% of all compensation (scale + 50%)
- If there are over three non-competitive products then 200% of all compensation is due


For example, a commercial holding one non-competitive product that is used in “All Cable,” the guarantee is still $8,000, but the 125% of $3,400 (or $4,250) shall be applied against the $8,000 guarantee.


Upfront Digital:


For a one-year MPU, principal performers shall receive payment for Internet, Over-the-Top (OTT) and New Media as follows:


- On-camera = $3,825.00
- Off-camera = $2,868.00


No automatic exclusivity unless bargained for at time of hire. Performer would be paid 4 session fees upfront.


Foreign use and Industrial use are paid at 60% of the traditional contract rates.


To move the commercial to television, producer must obtain prior consent from the principal performers and may use either the traditional contract rates or an Upfront Use Package.


A producer may either freely bargain for edits per the traditional contract or pay one additional session fee to use the new editing provisions.


Audio Flex:


Audio Flex is based on the “Three Ls”---Listening, Location and Length.


Session is $350.00 per 90-minute session, or part thereof, or per commercial recorded, whichever is greater.


For a one-year MPU, performers shall receive payments for unlimited use on each platform type at the rates for the periods identified in the Audio Flex Toolkit.


Tags: legal changes, geographic changes, product availability, contact information, different brand names, special offers
and promotions. Does NOT include legal language, car details, etc.


Payments for tags are as follows:


- Individual Tags = $100.00
- Bundle of 10 = $800.00
- Bundle of 20 = $1,300.00
- Bundle of 30 = $1,500.00
- Bundle of 40 = $1,600.00
- Bundle of 50 = $1,750.00


Mechanical edits (shorter versions) are $350.00 per edit and use counts as one with the original commercial.

The 2021 Union Influencer Waiver

Minimum Rates For Live Shows, Industrials & Non-Union Music Videos.

Read more

This 2021 Influencer Waiver (the “Waiver”) is available to signatory and JPC authorizer advertising agencies and advertisers. This Waiver covers bona fide Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content as defined below.

This Waiver may not be used to circumvent the terms and conditions of any SAG-AFTRA collective bargaining agreement or membership rule. This Waiver may not be used when the Influencer’s contract with the advertiser also includes services covered under another SAG-AFTRA collective bargaining agreement (for example, television commercials or motion pictures). Other non-covered services, such as print and personal appearances, are permitted.

While the JPC and SAG-AFTRA each reserve all rights with respect to the definition of a “commercial”, and whether all or any Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content is a “commercial” as defined under Section 4 of the Commercials Contract, except as otherwise provided herein, the terms and conditions of the Commercials Contract shall apply. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Commercials Contract.

Definitions:

For purposes of this Waiver, capitalized terms shall have the definitions below:

Influencer” has the meaning commonly understood in the advertising industry, and shall refer generally to an individual engaged to create Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content pursuant to the terms of this Waiver and who has amassed a substantial social media following and who creates and appears in Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content.

Influencer Produced Sponsored Content” is audiovisual content self-produced by an Influencer to promote an advertiser’s product or service created only for digital distribution on the Influencer’s and/or agency’s and/or advertiser’s website, on social media and/or on YouTube. Content written, filmed or produced by any party engaged by the advertiser or agency (other than the Influencer) (i.e., production company, ad agency, PR firm, etc.) shall not be covered by this Waiver. For purposes of clarity, the advertiser or agency may provide the Influencer with notes, suggested messaging, or other guidance relating to the content as long as it is not scripting the content in its entirety.

Covered Services” refers only to the Influencer’s on-camera and/or voiceover services for Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content.

Compensation:

Producer and Influencer may freely bargain Influencer’s Compensation for Covered Services.

Pension & Health Contributions - Standard Allocation:

Producers shall contribute to the SAG-AFTRA Health Plan and SAG-Producers Pension Plan (the “Plans”) an amount equal to 19% of all gross compensation for Covered Services, unless they are a JPC authorizer in which case the contribution rate shall be 18.5%.

For the purpose of calculating the pension and health contribution (the “Contribution”), the standard allocation of gross compensation for Covered Services is twenty percent (20%). Provided a Producer allocates in accordance with this Waiver, such allocation shall be rebuttably presumed to be proper. The parties may negotiate how the contribution will be deducted from or paid in addition to the gross compensation, provided that the compensation and contribution amounts are clearly and separately stated in the Influencer’s contract.

For purposes of example, only, if the Influencer’s total compensation is $10,000.00 dollars, a minimum of $2,000.00 dollars shall be deemed to be the minimum attributable Compensation for Covered Services. The contribution to the Plans shall be $380.00 for a signatory and $370.00 for a JPC authorizer.

Use in Other Media:

If Producer wants to use Influencer-Generated Sponsored Content produced under this Waiver in any other manner, or to distribute it on any other channel or platform or in any other medium (e.g. television or industrial use), Producer shall notify Influencer of its intended use. Any Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content produced under this Waiver subsequently used in whole or part in any other media covered by a SAG-AFTRA collective bargaining agreement requires payment of no less than the full use fees for that medium (e.g., television or industrial use). Consent of the Influencer is required prior to any television use.

Maximum Period of Use (“MPU”):

The MPU shall be 1 year from the date of first posting.

Producer must negotiate with Influencer for any use past the MPU, in accordance with Section 30.D. of the Commercials Contract. However, if the Influencer-Produced Sponsored Content appears on a website, social media platform, or on YouTube after the expiration of the MPU, but is not relevant to any current campaign and remains in the feed tied to its original posting date, no further payment shall be required provided that Producer complies with the Influencer’s request, if made, to remove it. For purposes of clarity, SAG-AFTRA may convey the request to the advertiser or agency on behalf of the Influencer.

Required Notice to Influencer:

Producer must notify Influencer or Influencer’s professional representative(s) at or before the time
of hire that Producer intends to utilize this Waiver.

Prohibitions – Stunts; Hazardous/Dangerous Conditions; Nudity:

Content produced pursuant to this Waiver may not contain stunts or hazardous/dangerous conditions. Content produced pursuant to this Waiver may not contain nudity or sexually explicit content, except to the extent such content is necessary to demonstrate the advertiser’s product or service.

No Waiver of Applicable Laws:

Nothing herein waives or limits any rights Influencer may have that are outside the scope of this Waiver or the Commercials Contract.

Term:

This waiver expires on March 31, 2022, unless otherwise agreed or extended by the bargaining parties.
