Toronto, ON (April 18, 2018) — Canadian performers have voted in favour (92.5 per cent) of ratifying the term extension of ACTRA’s TV and Radio Agreements with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for a one-year period to June 30, 2018.
The approved settlement provides an increase in minimum fees in both Agreements of 1.5 per cent. The agreements were ratified on April 16, 2018, and are retroactive to July 1, 2017.
