On Thursday, SAG-AFTRA president Fran Drescher and national executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland announced that the union’s national board had voted unanimously to launch the guild’s strike after failing to reach a deal with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP). With the decision, they join their sister union, the Writers’ Guild of America, which has been on strike since May 1.
SAG-AFTRA — which represents more than 160,000 performers including actors, announcers, DJs, dancers, broadcast journalists, and more — completed its original contract on June 30, but it had a 12-day extension to continue negotiations that subsequently ended on July 12. The union is demanding better working conditions and compensation for its workers amid industry changes related to streaming and artificial intelligence.
