The strike affects 11 companies, including: Activision Publishing, Inc.; Blindlight, LLC; Corps of Discovery Films; Disney Character Voices, Inc.; Electronic Arts Productions, Inc.; Formosa Interactive, LLC.; Insomniac Games, Inc.; Interactive Associates, Inc.; Take 2 Interactive Software; VoiceWorks Productions, Inc.; and WB Games, Inc. The strike affects games that began development at those companies on February 17, 2015 and onward.
The strike primarily concerns the secondary compensation for the actors, and transparency over the roles they will play.
The members of the union voted in October 2015 to grant the union’s board the authority to call a strike as part of the negotiations.
The law firm claimed that it called upon the union leadership to put the companies’ final proposal to a vote for the members, rather than strike.
