Didn’t this contract used to be called the Industrial Contract?

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.”

What is the rate for work on the weekends?

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.   

What are the late payment penalties?

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.

What is the difference between a Category I and Category II Co-Ed program?

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.

What is a corporate, educational or non-broadcast program?

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.
