SPT Additional Duties / Additional Pay
« on: Jul 10, 2007, 05:51 pm »
I have a friend who has her first SPT contract, and they are asking her to run sound.

It's her choice to do it or not, but is there something in the contract that would require additional payment?

I am asking just for my information at this point.

I asked this question a few months back...probably close to a year at this point regarding running the lights.

The bottom line was they do have to offer you compensation, if it states so in her rider (about running lights or sound for an additional fee), but it ends up being $5 or so a week.

This is that thread:,1451.0.html

It doesn't specifically say they have to pay her or require her but it does read as though they can ask, and it certainly would then sound like it's up to the parties to negotiate.   

I agree.  I'd tell your friend to check out rules 49 (H) and 54 (j)8(a) in her SPT book.
