All's well that is negotiated well. Prospect Park and I.A.T.S.E New York Production Locals 52, 161, 600, 700, 764, 798 and USA829 have ended their dispute over the production budgets for online soaps, All My Children and One Life to Live. According to a joint statement, production will resume on August 12.
“We are pleased that the parties were able to successfully address their concerns in a mutually beneficial way, which will enable these innovative shows to continue to be produced with our talented crews,” said New York Production Locals, Local 600 Representative David Blake.
Prospect Park principal, Jeff Kwatinetz has to be happy to have this particular item off his ever-expanding To-Do List. Said Kwatinetz:
"We thank the entire I.A.T.S.E. organization for their continued support in bringing these shows to fans, and we especially appreciate the efforts of Chaim Kantor and John Ford and our entire crew for helping us to move forward as a unified team.".
