The Hollywood Actor’s Guild – SAG AFTRA – has ratified the new contract negotiated with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, officially ending the union action that saw a 118 day strike earlier this year.

78% of SAG AFTRA’s 160,000 members voted for the deal, which will now be in place until June 30, 2026. It includes pay increases, AI protection and streaming-based bonuses.

“I’m proud of our SAG-AFTRA membership,” said SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher . “They struck for 118 days to grant the TV/Theatrical Negotiating Committee the necessary leverage to secure over $1 billion in gains, along with the union’s first-ever protections around AI technology. Now they’ve locked in the gains by ratifying the contract. SAG-AFTRA members have remained incredibly engaged throughout this process, and I know they’ll continue their advocacy throughout our next negotiation cycle. This is a golden age for SAG-AFTRA, and our union has never been more powerful.”
