The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers: The collective face of the major studios, which enters into negotiations with Unions In Hollywood and takes a hard line against labor.
During the 2007 Writer's Strike the AMPTP was led by Nick Counter and represented the interests of essentially the same set of studios as the Motion Picture Association of America:
- 20th Century Fox (Also FOX)
- Viacom/Paramount (which shares a corporate parent with CBS)
- Universal (Also NBC)
- Disney (also ABC)
- Warner Bros.
AMPTP contracts also cover nearly every studio or production house in Hollywood, but the minor studios are not represented in AMPTP decision-making, and frequently sign separate agreements with the unions during prolonged strikes. These agreements are superseded by the contracts that are ultimately agreed to at the end of these strikes.
