The Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) congratulates SAG-AFTRA for reaching a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) after a 118-day long strike.
The following is an update from the AFC to members in their October Newsletter:
We’re putting a temporary pause on accepting new applications for our Emergency Financial Aid Program.
Check out the facts and see why ACTRA members are so disappointed with proposed concessions and rate cuts of up to 59% from the ICA. Their proposed loopholes and discounts undermine unionized performers and gut the National Commercial Agreement.
We are deeply disappointed to be sharing that the mediator has determined that the parties are too far apart to meaningfully continue the mediation process. This means the confidentiality requirement and media blackout is paused. With the help of the mediator, we were finally able to force the ICA to provide an on the record proposal that we will share with the membership.
“An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us” says locked out actor Jonah Hundert, at our joint SAG-AFTRA rally in Toronto September 9, 2023.
Tomorrow the Alliance of Canadian Cinema Television Radio Artists (ACTRA) and the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) will hold a joint rally outside the Canadian headquarters of Amazon and Apple in Toronto to protest corporate greed that is diminishing the livelihoods of their members.
