Actors' Equity, ANTC Begin Negotiations

Negotiations Begin on Wednesday, May 12, 2004

Actors' Equity and the Association of Not-For-Profit Theatre Companies (ANTC) will begin negotiating a new contract, on May 12, 2004 at Equity headquarters in New York City. Earlier this year, the Council previously approved the recommendations of the Off Broadway Committee and Equity's Eastern Regional Board, recognizing ANTC for the purpose of collective bargaining. The result will be new contract governing employment for Equity Actors in eight prominent New York City theatre companies beginning in the 2004-2005 season. The ANTC theatres include the Atlantic Theater Company, Classic Stage Company, MCC Theater, The New Group, Primary Stages, Signature Theatre Company, Vineyard Theatre and Women's Project and Productions.

Equity's Chief Negotiator will be Senior Business Representative Rick Berg, assisted by staff member Patrick Lee. Equity's negotiating team is chaired by Irma Rogers. Jodi Schoenbrun will be Chief Negotiator for the ANTC theatres.
