SAG flexes some muscle and the hourly voice acting session rates go up.

Greetings,

For those of you who are members of the Screen Actors Guild and have performed voice-overs for cable cartoon shows recently, you've just landed a 20% increase in your residuals.

The deal is tentative (struck last Tuesday in Los Angeles), and if approved by the guild, payments will be raised by 20% to voice actors for reruns of their work on basic cable shows.

The pay increase would be retroactive to Jan. 1 and run through June 20, 2008.

For many of you, this financial recognition has been a long time coming. Will this increase make a big difference to your bottom line?

Best regards,

Stephanie
