We have been working towards making adjustments to Sideletter E in many previous negotiations, and we were finally able to get the employers to agree to changes in the members’ favor. The new wage classification structure has several key changes. It removes CGI Animator/Modeler 5 and Production Technical Director 5 classifications but applies those rates to CGi Animator/Modeler 4 and Production Technical Director 4. It also removes the 1st 18 months classification from CGI Animator/Modeler 1 and 2, and Production Technical Director 1 and 2. These changes will allow CG artists to progress through the wage classifications more quickly.
