Hollywood Actors Strike
TV and movie actors vote for biggest walkout in 40 years
About 160,000 television and movie actors are going on strike at midnight, joining screenwriters who walked off the job in May and setting off Hollywood’s first industrywide shutdown in 63 years.
The leaders of the union, SAG-AFTRA, approved a strike on Thursday, hours after contract talks with a group of studios broke down. Actors will be on the picket line starting on Friday.
"What's happening to us is happening across all fields of labor," said Fran Drescher, SAG-AFTRA's president. "When employers make Wall Street and greed their priority and they forget about the essential contributors who make the machine run, we have a problem."
