'Survivor' Editors End Strike Over a Labor Dispute


'Survivor' Editors End Strike Over a Labor Dispute


The post-production crew of the CBS reality show is back to work, one day after walking off the job over contract negotiations.

"Survivor" editors have returned to work after a strike that lasted less than one day. The Motion Picture Editors Guild announced late Wednesday night, August 13 that the show's producers agreed to let the post-production crew unionize, ending the brief walkout that threatened to delay the show's season 29 premiere.

MPEG said in a statement, "On Wednesday evening, the company agreed to the demand we issued on Tuesday for union recognition for the post crew of CBS's reality series 'Survivor'. Contract talks have been scheduled for Friday. In the meantime, our strike action has been suspended, and 'Survivor' post-production employees will return to their jobs on Thursday. Our picket line will stand down until further notice."

The post-production crew of the long-running reality competition series walked off the job on Wednesday after their request for a union contract with health and retirement benefit didn't get response from Mark Burnett's Island Post Prods. Inc., which produced the reality show. The strike put the show's return in jeopardy since work on the extended 90-minute season premiere has not been completed yet.

The new edition of "Survivor", which is set in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, will kick off September 24 on CBS.
