SAG-AFTRA members, including voice actors, motion capture performers, and stunt actors, have voted in favor of authorizing a video game strike if negotiations fail to reach an agreement on a new labor contract.
While the Writers Guild and Hollywood studios reached a tentative deal to end a historic five-month strike, the video game industry could see its biggest strike if negotiations fail.
Voting closed after Monday, and according to the SAG-AFTRA union, 98.32% voted in favor of authorizing a strike for the video game industry, which, much like the film and TV industries, is facing concerns about pay and the use of artificial intelligence.
It’s worth noting that the vote doesn’t guarantee a new strike, but it gives the union the power to call for one if negotiations fail.
“It’s time for the video game companies to stop playing games and get serious about reaching an agreement on this contract,” said SAG-AFTRA president Fran Drescher of The Nanny fame.
