Leading Hollywood actors say they are now looking at the offer from movie studios and considering what response they will give.
The movie studio employers’ association, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), made an offer to striking actors on Friday.
AMPTP, which represents Netflix, Walt Disney and other producers, said this is the “last, best and final offer,” according to a statement from the actors’ union Sag-Aftra on Saturday.
– We are studying the offer and thinking about the answer that we will provide to the Union countries.
AMPTP did not respond to Reuters’ requests for comment on the matter.
The AMPTP had previously warned Sag-Aftra that an agreement must be reached by the end of the week to avoid the cancellation of some TV series and prevent the postponement of movie premieres planned for the summer.
Sag-Aftra represents 160,000 actors and other industry professionals. They have been on strike since mid-July. They are demanding a higher base salary, income from streaming, and restrictions on the use of artificial intelligence (AI).
Negotiations between the two parties have collapsed several times.
