Hollywood’s Actors and Studios Resume Talks on Wednesday
SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP Negotiators Meet
Negotiators for the SAG-AFTRA actors’ union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) came together on Monday to discuss important matters. It is a positive step towards resolving ongoing issues between the two parties.
After concluding negotiations on Monday, both parties are now working independently on Tuesday. However, the negotiations will resume on Wednesday, Oct. 11, marking another significant milestone in the process.
SAG-AFTRA, representing 160,000 television and film performers, took a stand on July 14, demanding higher base wages and residual pay from streaming TV. They also emphasized the need for restrictions on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the entertainment industry. These demands reflect their commitment to protecting the rights and interests of their members.
The actors’ union aims to ensure fair compensation for their work and adapt to the changing landscape of the entertainment industry. By addressing issues related to streaming TV and AI, SAG-AFTRA is taking steps to secure a sustainable future for its members.
These negotiations are crucial for the entire Hollywood community as they shape the future of the industry. The successful resolution of these matters will not only benefit actors but also contribute to the growth and development of the entertainment sector as a whole.
