Writers Guild of America
2014 Theatrical and Television Basic Agreement
May 2, 2014
This schedule covers the entire term of the 2014 Basic Agreement, but is not the total contract. If there is any inconsistency between this schedule and the Basic Agreement, the Basic Agreement shall prevail.
Effective May 2, 2015, the contribution rate to the Writers Guild-Industry Health Fund ("Health Fund") will increase by .5% — from 8.5% of reportable compensation to 9% of reportable compensation. This change is a result of the Health Fund Trustees exercising their authority to divert monies to the Health Fund from the salary increases scheduled to go into effect on May 2. Therefore, the increase in minimums, effective May 2, 2015, will be 2.5%, rather than 3%.
If you have any questions regarding the application of these provisions or minimums, or relating to categories of minimums not included in this schedule, or if you have a question as to interpretation of the Basic Agreement, contact the Guild.
