Why isn’t ACTRA on strike in solidarity with SAG-AFTRA?
While ACTRA stands in full solidarity with our sibling union SAG-AFTRA, the Independent Production Agreement that governs our film and television jurisdiction in all provinces except British Columbia does not expire until 2024, and UBCP/ACTRA recently voted to extend the British Columbia Master Production Agreement (BCMPA) until March 31, 2025. Therefore, ACTRA is not in a legal strike position. ACTRA continues to support SAG-AFTRA in every way possible.
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.

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.
