Actors Unions Make Deal With Hollywood

Hollywood’s two major actors unions have made a deal on new contracts. “Under the agreement, which still needs final approval, actors will get a nine per cent minimum pay raise over three years, increased money for the unions’ health and pension plans and greater protections for stunt actors and extras. However, actors did not get a larger share of DVD residuals, which unions representing writers and directors had tried unsuccessfully for in their recent contract negotiations.”
