SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP Reach a Tentative Deal

November 8, 2023 by  

The more than six-month labor disputes are tentatively set to end, as SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative agreement, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

According to THR, the strike will end at 12:01 AM on Thursday; today marked day 118 of SAG-AFTRA’s strike.

The deal comes more than a month after WGA reached their own deal with the studios.

Update (6:28 PM PT): SAG-AFTRA confirmed the deal on their website, writing:

We are thrilled and proud to tell you that today your TV/Theatrical Negotiating Committee voted unanimously to approve a tentative agreement with the AMPTP.  As of 12:01am on November 9, our strike is officially over and all picket locations are suspended. We will be in touch in the coming days with information about celebration gatherings around the country. 

In a contract valued at over one billion dollars, we have achieved a deal of extraordinary scope that includes “above-pattern” minimum compensation increases, unprecedented provisions for consent and compensation that will protect members from the threat of AI, and for the first time establishing a streaming participation bonus. Our Pension & Health caps have been substantially raised, which will bring much needed value to our plans. In addition, the deal includes numerous improvements for multiple categories including outsize compensation increases for background performers, and critical 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.


Full details of the agreement will not be provided until the tentative agreement is reviewed by the SAG-AFTRA National Board.

We also thank our union siblings — the workers that power this industry — for the sacrifices they have made while supporting our strike and that of the Writers Guild of America. We stand together in solidarity and will be there for you when you need us. 

Thank you all for your dedication, your commitment and your solidarity throughout this strike. It is because of YOU that these improvements became possible. 

Update (Friday, November 10): The National Board has approved the deal; it will now be sent to the members to vote on.
