Yes, it was called the Industrial Contract but in the most recent negotiations the name was changed to better represent what this contract offers. It is now called the Corporate/Educational & Non-Broadcast Contract, which we have shortened for ease of use to “Co-Ed Contract.”
Yes. Signatory producers must issue SAG employment contracts and pay not less than the minimum fees to the first 10 background performers.
Unlike the Commercials Contract, work on Saturday and/or Sunday under the Co-Ed Contract is not double-scale. However, it is double-scale for work on the 6th and 7th consecutive day of work.
There is potential for supplemental use fees. Please contact your SAG-AFTRA local office for specifics.
Category II programs have a term length of 5 years from the date of production. Category I programs can be used indefinitely.
Late fees are $3.00 a day (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays) up to 30 days for a maximum of $90. If the payment is still delinquent after 30 business days, the Guild can send a notice to the producer assessing an additional $75 and $5 a day until the payment is made.
Session payment for a Co-Ed program is due 30 calendar days after the session.
Co-Ed programs are divided into 2 categories with different rates. Category I programs are designed to train, inform, or promote a product or perform a public relations function and are shown on a restricted, in-house basis only. This includes all programs made for exhibition in classrooms, museums, libraries and other similar locations regardless of whether or not an admission fee is charged.
Generally, these are productions for non-broadcast use, including in classrooms, in stores, or DVDs shown in corporate offices or dealer showrooms. They can also be instructional content shown on websites or on new media platforms. Behind-the-scenes footage or b-roll footage also falls under the Co-Ed Contract.
