Council Approves TYA Contract Extension

The current TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) contract is scheduled to expire on June 27, 2010. In April, the three regional TYA committees met nationally and recommended that Council approve a one-year extension of the contract.

Late last year, the long-time President of PLOTYA (Producers' League of Theatre for Young Audiences), the producers' collective bargaining organization, resigned and the organization is still in the process of reorganizing.

The TYA committees and ultimately Council acknowledged the transition occurring within PLOTYA as well as the current state of the economy and therefore felt that a one-year extension would be of benefit to all. The new expiration date of the TYA contract is June 26, 2011 and PLOTYA has agreed to an increase in the weekly health contribution under the weekly contract and a small increase in the performance salary under the per performance contract option effective June 28, 2010.
