Uta Wga Agreement

UTA has agreed to terminate the packaging of television and film projects by June 30, 2022, but only if the WGA has reached a similar agreement with one of the three remaining major agencies: WME, CAA or ICM Partners. UTA now has a head start in the new signing of some of the more than 7,000 authors who fired its agents in April 2019, without the risk that its competitors will one day be able to resume the packaging of TV series and films around the authors. The UTA agreement is all the more important for the guild because the contractual provisions against packaging fees are all the more important for the guild because the UTA agreement contains an anti-packaging provision prohibiting new packaging. But what gives one hand, takes another, is that the provision will not come into force until June 30, 2022, even if another “designated agency” (WME, CAA or ICM) also starts (or leaves the case) or if the WGA wins in court – or arouses enough legislative interest in the whole confusing case to obtain a legal ban on packaging that it enjoys a legal ban on packaging. which seems unlikely. First a collective agreement, now this one. A pandemic may have taken time, but progress is possible. “The UTA agreement extends the sunset of the packaging until June 30, 2022; Until then, packaging is only permitted with the author`s informed consent. The Agency may have up to 20% non-dominant ownership of a production company. PREVIOUSLY, July 14, 10:30 p.m.: In what would be the WGA`s biggest benefit in its years-long standoff with the best agencies, the scribes union appears to be on the verge of reaching an agreement with UTA tonight. The core of the agreement is therefore in orbit around the flow, unless WME, CAA or ICM Partners – which are not involved in legal actions – can also abandon the tried-and-tested technique of printing money. Promising sources say deadline that another agency agreement is in the process of passing. A final topic was a seemingly harmless substantive language just before the start of the agreement that all agencies have signed since Verve: “In accordance with its role as exclusive negotiator, the guild is legally authorized to define the conditions set out here in this agreement, in which an agent may exercise certain obligations of representation.” In any case, the latest UTA cap is fine, according to an agency source, because the company had kept its stake in Civic Center Media below 20 percent to stay in compliance with the AFTRA franchise agreement, which also has a 20 percent cap. (Disclosure: THR`s parent company, Valencia Media, has a partnership with UTA via the Civic Center.) The guild will be provided with contractual information, notes and invoices that will allow the WGA and the Agency to cooperate in the systematic handling of delays and work leave.

Strict restriction on the holding of agencies in production units. A sunset that puts an end to the practice of packing. The UTA agreement extends the sunset of the packaging until June 30, 2022; Until then, packaging is only permitted with the author`s informed consent. The Agency may have up to 20% non-dominant ownership of a production company. The agreement “extends the sunset date of the package until June 30, 2022,” the letter states.
