SAG-AFTRA Moves Toward Strike as Negotiations With Studios Fail

Backstage: Leaders of SAG-AFTRA, the union representing onscreen performers, unanimously voted on June 25 to send strike authorization ballots to its members unless a new deal is reached by Friday, June 30, when the current contract expires.

The decision follows a month of unsuccessful negotiations with studios, represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, in response to what the union’s national board has called “outrageous rollbacks that cut to the core of our basic terms and conditions.”
