After a last attempt to reach an agreement with video game employers this week was not successful SAG-AFTRA is on strike against several video game employers with regard to all games that went into production after Feb. 17, 2015.
The two issues of greatest contention are transparency and compensation.
After nearly two years, management has been unwilling to resolve these issues in an equitable manner. This strike is not the union’s preferred outcome, but is necessary to let employers know SAG-AFTRA members will stand fast to their principles and not be exploited.
For more details please read the official strike announcement.
