released a memo to members of the actors guild congratulating the Directors Guild of America on reaching a tentative agreement on a new labor contract while noting that such a deal will have no impact on SAG-AFTRA’s own labor talks beginning this week. “Our bargaining strategy has never relied upon nor been dependent on the outcome or status of any other union’s negotiations, nor do we subscribe to the philosophy that the terms of deals made with other unions bind us,” the memo reads. “We continue to stand in strong solidarity with the members of the WGA and with their strike, and we congratulate the DGA on their bargaining and look forward to reviewing the detailed terms of their agreement as soon as possible,” Crabtree-Ireland continued.

Late Saturday night, the DGA announced that it had reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on a new three-year labor contract that will go to the guild’s national board in a special meeting on Tuesday.

If the agreement is approved by the board, which is expected, further details on the agreement will be disclosed to members and the public.

The DGA did release an overview of the gains negotiated in the contract, which include a 76% increase in foreign streaming residuals, a higher-than-usual annual increase in minimum rates, and a ban on live ammunition on production sets.
