For the first time in the history of the agreement, writers have their own job classification, and a framework to build a ladder of progression. We can now improve on this framework in future bargaining cycles. The progression has added new classifications for wage minimums, and also addresses issues related to compensation for experienced writers who are not in a supervisory role. The writers progression now includes: Associate Animation Writer, Animation Writer Level 1, Animation Writer Level 2, and Supervising Animation Writer. The writers were able to achieve wage increases in nearly all categories, and they received significant increases to health and pension benefits in order to better retain healthcare coverage.
