SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher is getting ready Warning Talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers next week.
Talks between the actors’ union and studio representatives will resume on Monday, two and a half months after more than 160,000 guild members went on strike and a week after the Writers Guild of America and AMPTP reached a tentative contract agreement.
“We’re glad the WGA came to an agreement, but one size doesn’t fit all,” Treasure told CNN on Thursday. “We look forward to resuming talks with AMPTP.”
SAG-AFTRA negotiators will meet with several executives from AMPTP member companies to develop new television and plays ContractsAccording to the union.
Both SAG-AFTRA and the WGA have sought contract changes related to streaming residuals and artificial intelligence. Actors are asking for better relocation costs for actors working out of state or country, and shorter breaks between television seasons to give more stability to actors under contract.
The WGA has voted to authorize its members to return to work following a tentative agreement reached this week.
SAG-AFTRA has been on strike since July 14.
