End of the strike in the USA

The agreement includes a contract valued at more than $1 billion and will improve the salaries of more than 160,000 interpreters.

The Screen Actors Guild of the United States SAG-AFTRA and the Hollywood studios reached a "million-dollar" provisional agreement this Wednesday to end a strike that has lasted almost four months and affects more than 160,000 performers.

"We are excited and proud to tell you that today your TV/Theater Negotiating Committee has voted unanimously to approve a tentative agreement (...) our strike is officially suspended and all pickets are withdrawn. We will be in contact in the coming days with information about the celebration meetings throughout the country," the union reported in a statement.

The agreement includes a contract "valued at more than 1 billion dollars" (about 934 million euros) and with it both the minimum wage of workers and contributions to their health and pension funds will be improved, payments will be increased so-called residuals (those that performers receive after the broadcast on television, and now on platforms, of their series and films) and there will be new rules that will regulate the use of artificial intelligence.

As already happened in the writers' strike, the 160,000 actors in the guild will have to vote on its approval on Friday, and there the details of the pact will be known. In the case of writers, 99% approved the proposal at the end of September, after almost five months of strike.
