Justin Timberlake and SAG-AFTRA have reached an agreement for the dancers on his 20/20 Experience World Tour to be covered by the SAG-AFTRA Touring Agreement.
Under the agreement, performer earnings count toward pension and health benefits eligibility. The deal also provides touring companies with improved budget flexibility through direct negotiations with performers.
SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard applauded Timberlake and the SAG-AFTRA dancers who worked to unionize the 20/20 Experience tour.
SAG-AFTRA today released the following statement:
Today, staff at KPBS public radio and television in San Diego voted to join 165,000 media and entertainment professional in recognizing SAG-AFTRA as their union.
The new bargaining unit will cover 55 public media professionals who produce, report, host, and present content for television, radio, and the internet. This election allows them to move forward to negotiate a first contract.
SAG-AFTRA mourns the passing of John C. Hall Jr., a former national executive secretary of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, who died Nov. 10. Hall was deeply dedicated to unionism and selflessly gave of his time and energy to promote the wellbeing of performers and media professionals.
In observance of Veterans Day, all SAG-AFTRA offices will be closed on Monday, November 11th, re-opening on Tuesday, November 12th.
We also want to thank all of our Veterans and their families for the service and sacrifice they make for our country.
