SAG-AFTRA Strike Update

On Friday, November 3, 2023, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), which represents the major Hollywood studios, delivered a new proposal to SAG-AFTRA in an attempt to end the strike. The proposal reportedly includes increases in pay and residuals, as well as new protections for actors working on streaming productions.

SAG-AFTRA is currently reviewing the proposal, and it is unclear when they will respond. However, the fact that the studios have made a new offer is seen as a positive sign by many observers.

In the meantime, the strike continues to have a significant impact on the Hollywood industry. Many productions have been delayed or canceled, and thousands of actors and other workers are out of work.

Key Issues At Stake In The Strike:

Pay and residuals: SAG-AFTRA is seeking increases in pay and residuals, particularly for actors working on streaming productions.

Artificial intelligence: SAG-AFTRA is also concerned about the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in film and television productions. The guild is worried that AI could be used to replace actors, and they want to ensure that actors are properly compensated for their work when AI is used.

Workplace protections: SAG-AFTRA is also seeking new workplace protections for actors, such as safeguards against sexual harassment and discrimination.


Studios reportedly stop negotiating with SAG-AFTRA until January

The outcome of the strike is still uncertain, but it is clear that both sides are eager to reach a resolution. The studios are losing money due to the strike, and SAG-AFTRA members are struggling to make a living. It is hoped that the two sides can come to an agreement soon that is fair to both parties.

In the meantime, actors and other workers in the Hollywood industry can continue to support the strike by refusing to work on productions that are not covered by a SAG-AFTRA contract. They can also donate to the SAG-AFTRA Strike Fund to help support their fellow union members who are out of work.
