The union will resume negotiations with 10 video game companies regarding the Interactive Media Agreement, the union’s video game contract, on Tuesday.
The Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) labor union’s members have voted 98.32% in favor of a strike authorization against 10 video game companies.
The union is negotiating with Activision Productions Inc.; Blindlight LLC; Disney Character Voices Inc.; Electronic Arts Productions Inc.; Epic Games, Inc.; Formosa Interactive LLC; Insomniac Games Inc.; Take 2 Productions Inc.; VoiceWorks Productions Inc.; and WB Games Inc. If negotiations fail, the SAG-AFTRA board may call a strike at any time.
The vote alone does not initiate a strike, but permits the union’s national board to declare a strike if ongoing negotiations are not successful.
