Finally a resolve to SAG’s big dumb dramatic cliff-hanger. No actors strike. According to reports, the contract was ratified by a huge margin in a high turn-out.
The two-year contract was patterned after similar agreements negotiated last year with three other talent unions.
It includes an immediate pay increase of 3% and, for the first time, gives actors residual pay for shows that stream on websites such as Hulu that enable viewers to watch them free of charge.
