DGA-AICP pact provides for members’ pay raise

The new two-year commercials contract between the DGA and the AICP covers salary increases, the adoption of a code of preferred practices on creative rights and provisions protecting and securing health and pension coverage for directors.

“I’m very pleased by the outcome of the commercial negotiations, especially considering the state of advertising in this economy,” said DGA president Taylor Hackford.

“By working together with the AICP, we were able to find solutions that will benefit both sides of the table, ultimately providing more work for all of us.”
