On July 21, the SAG-AFTRA National Board unanimously approved a new agreement covering music videos. This is the first agreement of its kind with the major record labels to cover dancers and other performers on music videos.
The three-year agreement, between SAG-AFTRA and Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, EMI Music and The Walt Disney Co., was the first of its kind in the industry. It ensures that those who work on music videos have basic health and safety guarantees, minimum daily rates and contributions to their retirement plans.
