Padilla Statement on SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP Deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) released the following statement after a tentative agreement was reached between the SAG-AFTRA TV/Theatrical Committee and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP):

“I’m glad to see SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP reach an agreement that will benefit working actors and get our entertainment industry back in action. From increased wages to establishing new rules for the use of artificial intelligence and increasing residual payments for shows streamed online, this contract is a win for all workers in a rapidly evolving industry. Following historic deals for writers and directors, I look forward to seeing the SAG-AFTRA board and members ratify this agreement and get film and television productions rolling again.”
