1 SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TELEVISION AND RADIO ARTISTS September 5, Extension Agreement to 2003 SAG Commercials Contract and the 2003 AFTRA Television and Radio Recorded Commercials Contracts DEAR AFTRA and SAG MEMBERS: On August 26, the Joint SAG/AFTRA National Board of Directors voted by a majority of nearly 95% to recommend a two year Extension Agreement of the 2003 SAG Commercials Contract and the 2003 AFTRA Television and Radio Recorded Commercials Contracts which would be expanded to cover all commercials, made for, or exhibited on New Media. Here s What We Gained In this Two Year Extension Agreement: FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF COMMERCIALS, ALL ACTORS WILL BE CLEARLY COVERED UNDER A UNION CONTRACT FOR THEIR WORK IN NEW MEDIA. THE TERM NEW MEDIA IS INTENDED TO BE ALL INCLUSIVE OF DIGITAL, ELECTRONIC OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF DELIVERY PLATFORM, WHETHER NOW KNOWN (PODCAST, MOBILE PHONES, MP3 PLAYERS, ETC.) OR UNKNOWN Previously, jurisdiction of New Media was not clearly set out in the contracts. ALL WAGE MINIMUMS INCREASE 6% ON OCTOBER 30, 2006, INCLUDING CLASS A, CABLE, WILD SPOT, BACKGROUND PERFORMERS AND SPANISH LANGUAGE Class A rates will increase for the first time since COMMERCIALS MADE DIRECTLY FOR NEW MEDIA Session, editing rights, and exclusivity shall be bargained freely as separate categories as they currently are with commercials made directly for the Internet. COMMERCIALS MADE FOR BROADCAST THAT ARE MOVED OVER TO INTERNET AND/OR NEW MEDIA New 8 week cycle paid at not less than the applicable session fee any additional use beyond the 8 week cycle requires payment above and beyond the present contract. Editing rights shall be bargained freely as a separate category.

2 THE CONTRIBUTION RATE TO THE SAG PENSION PLAN AND THE AFTRA HEALTH AND RETIREMENT FUND INCREASES BY 0.5% TO 14.8% AS OF OCTOBER 30, 2006 For the Screen Actors Guild, the increase will be fully dedicated to the SAG Pension Plan. AFTRA s 0.5% rate increase will be allocated as the Health & Retirement Fund Trustees deem necessary. Why Extend the Contracts? The two year extension: Brings stability and continued continuity, as well as substantial increases, while at the same time allowing for a study of the exploding growth of New Media now recognized by the Industry as under the unions jurisdiction Allows added time to refine our positions throughout the contract to ensure that we maximize our wages and working conditions to the fullest Opportunity to mount a campaign to build support around our negotiating priorities We will build on these achievements in full negotiations in the fall of 2008 with a clearer understanding of the impact which rapid technological changes will have on our contracts. WE URGE YOU TO VOTE YES TO APPROVE THIS TWO YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION. THE JOINT AFTRA/SAG NATIONAL BOARD Alan Rosenberg SAG President John Connolly AFTRA President Peter Frank SAG Interim National Executive Director Kim Roberts Hedgpeth AFTRA National Executive Director 2
