The 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike has come to an end after 118 days. It’s the second instance of a high-profile labor strike in Hollywood lasting for eons but finally coming to a positive close in 2023 following the resolution of the Writer’s Guild of America strike. The ending of this strike resulted in a slew of concessions and changes from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), a trade association representing a slew of film and television production companies (like Netflix, Disney, Warner Bros.) In a breakdown with Rolling Stone, SAG-AFTRA national executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland explained what exactly this tentative agreement with AMPTP entailed. Among the many accomplishments here were strict restrictions on how digital replicas of actors could or could not be used. There were also significant improvements applied to the kind of revenue actors could expect in the long term from acting in streaming productions and general wage increases across the board.
