More than 700 members, including our brothers and sisters from allied unions, have joined us on the line for our first two pickets. That solidarity has sent a powerful message to the video game corporations: SAG-AFTRA is tough to fight. But this struggle isn’t over. We need to keep the momentum going until the video game corporations return to the bargaining table.
After nearly two years of unsuccessful negotiations, SAG-AFTRA called a strike against certain video game producers, effective at 12:01 a.m Friday, October 21. SAG-AFTRA is striking the following video game employers: Activision Publishing, Inc.; Blindlight, LLC; Corps of Discovery Films; Disney Character Voices, Inc.; Electronic Arts Productions, Inc.; Formosa Interactive, LLC; Insomniac Games, Inc.; Interactive Associates, Inc.; Take 2 Interactive Software; VoiceWorks Productions, Inc.; and WB Games, Inc. These companies are being struck only with regard to video games that went into production after Feb. 17, 2015. (Visit this page for a list of struck titles.)
