SAG-AFTRA Strike Authorization: Performers in Video Games Demand Fair Terms
Members Overwhelmingly Approve Strike Authorization for Video Game Industry
SAG-AFTRA members have sent a resounding message by voting overwhelmingly in favor of a strike authorization for performers working in the video game industry. This authorization, with 98.32% of the 34,687 members voting “yes,” grants the union the potential to call for a strike, though it doesn’t automatically trigger one. The decision comes as a result of protracted negotiations for a new contract with video game companies, which have been ongoing since 2022.
