All travel provisions related to the issue commonly known as “portal-to-portal” remain in effect as always, and did not change during our recent negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers or with the television networks.
It’s important that you know that producers may not unilaterally rewrite these rules. SAG-AFTRA intends to vigorously defend this contract provision using all means available. We are addressing this matter directly with the studios to ensure the proper administration of this provision in our Agreement.
Performers working on location should review carefully their time sheets and call sheets, and immediately advise the union of any discrepancies they find.
We appreciate member inquiries about this issue and will keep you apprised as the situation unfolds.
