O SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood Actors Union, and representatives of the major studios will resume negotiations to try to put an end to the strike this Wednesday (8). In a statement, the entity confirmed a new meeting after the AMPTP (Film and TV Producers Alliance) change proposals around the use of artificial intelligence.
“Following a meeting on Monday night with the AMPTPthe TV/Theatre Negotiating Committee spent 10 hours deliberating today [terça]. We will continue on Wednesday. We appreciate your patience and support while we finish our work”, says the text published on X (formerly Twitter) in the early hours of today. Check it out below:
Union representatives met with leaders of the AMPTP on Monday night (6), after reviewing the document of what would be the “final proposal”, delivered last Saturday (4). In this new meeting, the parties would have reached some understanding regarding artificial intelligence. SAG-AFTRA is due to meet later this Tuesday to debate the proposals, and the expectation is that the new resolutions around AIs will be enough to seal the agreement. The actors’ strike has lasted 118 days.
The strike not only prevents the filming of many projects that feature interpreters affiliated with SAG, but also prevents these actors from participating in press events for films that are already completed.
SAG-AFTRA also counted on additional pressure from the writers, who went on strike in May, but reached an agreement to review contracts in October. With the end of the scriptwriters’ strike, some productions have already resumed activities.
