Default Report: Tracee Ellis Ross is threatening to reduce her work on Black-ish if she doesn

...’t receive pay on par with Anthony Anderson

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ne...arency-1075132

Ross earning significantly less than her co-star was discussed at a recent Time’s Up meeting, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Tatiana Siegel. She reports that “with negotiations for the fifth season ongoing, sources say Ellis Ross feels that if she isn't brought up to Anderson's level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show. The tactic has split opinions within Time's Up, with some worried that it's more a retreat than a forward-looking solution (fitting in extra work isn't always feasible, and often an actress wouldn't earn as much guesting as she would as a network star). A network source says a new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross' roles aren't equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.” But as Siegel notes, this kind of discussion wouldn’t have happened without the recent discussion about equal pay.

Tracee Ellis Ross: “There were never any threats” over equal pay and my Black-ish future
On Saturday night, the Black-ish star posted a statement on Twitter in response to Thursday's Hollywood Reporter article that reported a Time’s Up meeting that extensively discussed her salary negotiation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “sources say Ellis Ross feels that if she isn't brought up to (co-star Anthony) Anderson's (salary) level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.” In response, Ross wrote that she “was in a renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during a successful show. I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is like to be a fully realized black woman on TV.” However, she wanted to make it clear that "the words and thoughts that were in the original article that started this public conversation were not mine; there were never any threats," and that she was never contacted by the reporter. “Having had my renegotiation become a public conversation was awkward,” she added, “but I’m grateful for the outpouring of support.”
