With the SAG-AFTRA Commercials Contract set to expire today, the Joint Policy Committee and SAG-AFTRA just announced that they have agreed to extend the term of the contract until 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, April 2nd. During this period, the terms of the contract, including all waivers and other provisions with sunset provisions, will remain in effect.

SAG-AFTRA and the JPC have been negotiating the contract since February 20th. Because of the media blackout, there is very little information available about the status of the negotiations. (We previously blogged about the negotiations here.)

The parties said that they are continuing to negotiate.
