SAG-AFTRA Reaches Tentative AMPTP Deal


SAG-AFTRA’s TV/theatrical negotiating committee has unanimously voted to approve a tentative agreement with the AMPTP, with the strike suspended as of 12:01 a.m. today.

SAG-AFTRA says the contract is valued at over $1 billion and includes “above-pattern” minimum compensation increases, provisions for consent and compensation around AI and a streaming participation bonus. In addition, pension and health caps have been raised “substantially,” the union says. There are also compensation increases for background performers and contract provisions protecting diverse communities.

“We have arrived at a contract that will enable SAG-AFTRA members from every category to build sustainable careers. Many thousands of performers now and into the future will benefit from this work,” the union said.

The tentative agreement must still be reviewed by the SAG-AFTRA National Board.
