Video game voice actors overwhelmingly authorize strike

Video game voice actors overwhelmingly authorize strike

October 7, 2015 | By Christian Nutt




Members of leading actors' guild SAG-AFTRA have overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike -- a new bargaining chip in the guild's ongoing negotiations with the video game industry.

At the crux of the issue is residual payments on performances, set to be triggered on games that sell over 2 million copies, which the guild declares "blockbusters."

96.52 percent of the guild's members voted in favor of authorizing the strike, the guild reported. However, that doesn't mean the strike will immediately go forward; this will undoubtedly affect negotiations.

"With this result in hand, the Negotiating Committee will seek to return to the bargaining table and continue to press for a fair resolution on behalf of performers working in video games," the guild promised.

If you'd like to know more, you can read our earlier reporting; there's also an informative FAQ on the guild's site, covering the issues at hand.
