Similar to the MLBPA, the National Board of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists also negotiates a basic minimum salary. The general contract between the SAG and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers reads:

Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prevent any individual from negotiating and obtaining from Producer better conditions and terms of employment than those herein contained. This Agreement shall not affect any of the terms or conditions of employment contained in any individual personal service contract which are better than those herein contained.[52]
