The association had taken steps to strike beginning Monday in case it couldn't agree with the Union of Movie and TV Makers.
A strike would have closed down film and TV creation around the US in the greatest stoppage since the 2007-2008 strike by Hollywood screenwriters. It would have hit a wide scope of media organizations including Netflix Inc, Walt Disney Co, and Comcast Corp.

IATSE, in its assertion, said the proposed contract resolves those issues, including rest periods, feast breaks, a living pay for those on the lower part of the compensation scale, and huge expansions in remuneration to be paid by new-media organizations.
