Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists announced in their website that they will be targeting several companies on Oct.21 at 12:01 am. According an Open letter addressed to their members, Game Studios have steadfastly refused to reach a ‘fair deal’ during contract negotiations despite ‘years of concerted effort’.
SAG-AFTRA is now calling all actors, whether, they are in the union or not, as long as they understand the importance of the issue and honors the strike. New announcements are expected as SAG-AFTRA representatives are back at the table with the goal of creating ‘a fair contract that is rooted in industry standards and best practices’.
