Hollywood actors’ union Sag-Aftra agrees tentative deal to end 4-month strike
US actors’ union Sag-Aftra has reached an agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and TV Producers (AMPTP) in a unanimous vote.
The tentative deal with Hollywood studios is set to see actors return to work after a four-month strike.
The shutdown – which combined with a separate writers’ strike – paralysed the entertainment industry, with numerous TV and films being delayed.
Actors have been calling for better pay and safeguards on the use of AI.
Sag-Aftra president Fran Drescher posted: “We did it!!!!” She thanked members “for hanging in and holding out for this historic deal!”
