SAG-AFTRA Rescinds ‘Do Not Work’ Order Against BeeAudio, New Contract increases members’ pay rates by 150% to nearly 250%

SAG-AFTRA is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with audiobook producer BeeAudio.

Under this new contract, audiobook narrators will be paid industry-standard rates ranging from $150 to $240 per completed hour of work.  This deal affects the more than 200 audiobook professionals currently on BeeAudio’s roster.

"We are thrilled to have an agreement with BeeAudio," said Jane Love, SAG-AFTRA Audiobook negotiator. "It makes sense for the company, the narrators, and the industry and we look forward to working with everyone at BeeAudio going forward."

This ends the “Do Not Work Notice” issued in November 2012. Members are now free to perform work for BeeAudio.

This agreement marks the 27th audiobook producer organized since 2008 as SAG-AFTRA continues our efforts to enhance our organizing reach in the area of audiobooks.
