Screen Actors Strike is Over

"Dear SAG-AFTRA Members, 

 "We are thrilled and proud to tell you that today your TV/Theatrical Negotiating Committee voted unanimously to approve a tentative agreement with the 'AMPTP': 

"As of 12:01am on November 9, our strike is officially suspended and all picket locations are closed. 

"We will be in touch in the coming days with information about celebration gatherings around the country. 

"In a contract valued at over one billion dollars, we have achieved a deal of extraordinary scope that includes 'above-pattern' minimum compensation increases, unprecedented provisions for consent and compensation that will protect members from the threat of AI, and for the first time establishes a streaming participation bonus.

"Our Pension & Health caps have been substantially raised, which will bring much needed value to our plans. In addition, the deal includes numerous improvements for multiple categories including outsize compensation increases for background performers, and critical contract provisions protecting diverse communities. 

In solidarity and gratitude, 

Your TV/TH Negotiating Committee"
