SAG-AFTRA Entertainment Union Votes to Extend Strike to Video Games
The national board of the SAG-AFTRA entertainment union, representing approximately 160,000 workers, has unanimously voted to authorize strikes for its members in the video game industry. This decision comes in preparation for upcoming contract negotiations with signatory video game companies.
SAG-AFTRA members have been on strike since July 14, 2023, but the strike has primarily affected TV, theater, and streaming agreements. The video game industry professionals had not been directly involved in strike action until now.
