|Are you not signed to the IATSE National Commercial Agreement for 2017? Read this for important details about job titles and what to convey to your freelancer population|
As noted earlier in this newsletter, effective January 1, 2017, companies not signatory
to the IATSE National Commercials Agreement will have the following job categories eligible for coverage and requiring
contributions, in addition to the original job categories currently covered (i.e. Producer, Production Manager, Production Supervisor, Production Coordinator, Bidder, Production Assistant):
- Animator (2D or 3D),
- CG Supervisor,
- Effects Artist,
- Flame Artist,
- Render Wrangler,
- Technical Director
Again, similar to the original job titles, all modifiers, prefix, and suffix of any of the above titles will still be viewed as covered job categories. Sample modifiers are: associate, assistant, CG, digital, interactive, post, VR, etc.
It is key that your freelancers be aware of these changes, as your payroll house processes are based upon how your freelancers complete their time cards. For administrative ease, we've provided a summary of the above to hand out to your freelancers when hired (attached here).
