“In a unanimous vote this afternoon, The SAG-AFTRA TV/Theatrical Committee approved a tentative agreement with the AMPTP bringing an end to the 118 day strike,” the union said in a statement. “The strike officially ends at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, November 9.”

SAG-AFTRA did not disclose terms of the agreement, but said details would be released after it is reviewed by the national board on Friday.

The proposed contract — which still must be ratified by the union’s members — would boost minimum pay for members, increase residual payments for shows streamed online and bolster contributions to the union’s health and pension plans. It also establishes new rules for the use of artificial intelligence, a major source of concern for actors.

    I’m glad to hear that strike was resolved. I’m not sure how many AI protections were added yet, since the terms haven’t been announced yet; but I am relatively confident SAG wouldn’t agree without significant protections.
