ABSTRACT
The article reports on the tentative deal between the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and the major networks and producers on the Network Code, the contract that covers a broad array of television programming, from soap operas to newscasts. The agreement comes at a time when AFTRA has been urging the Screen Actors Guild to staff early talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on the two unions' prime-time contract, which the unions have jointly bargained for years.
