Statement on Ratification of the SAG-AFTRA Agreements
We congratulate Ken Howard, David White, the SAG-AFTRA Bargaining Committee and Board for their leadership in achieving ratification of the new theatrical and television agreements. Together, we undertook the historic step of creating a unified television contract and set the stage for expanding market opportunities that benefit both the union and the companies. We look forward to our continued partnership with SAG-AFTRA to address the challenges and complexities of our industry during the term of the new agreements.
