Short Engagement Touring Agreement

The Short Engagement Touring Agreement (SETA) is negotiated and limited for productions of touring plays and musicals with guarantees below a certain threshold. This agreement contains provisions for split-week and one-night engagements that allow for flexible performance planning as well as international tours. Productions must qualify for the use of this agreement based on the size of the occupancy, the cost of the trucks and the average weekly warranty. Housing and money for time are provided by the producer to all actors outside their permanent residence. All actors are contributing to a 401(k) plan as well as health and pension benefits. The agreement includes six categories of qualifications that govern minimum wages. Mary McColl, Executive Director of Equity, said in a statement: “This agreement is an asset to equity members who will benefit from greater financial and employment security, and to the industry as a whole, as we have ensured that Broadway theatre can continue to grow and prosper.” Peaks of success: • Annual increase in minimum weekly wages of 3.5% (10.87% over three years). . . .
