WGA to Resume Talks - SAG-AFTRA Amends Interim Agreement - Business: Q2 - A.I.

By Abigail Hardin, August 15, 2023

Happy Tuesday, UTD!

Negotiations continue this Friday between WGA and AMPTP. While the union is urging people to not get their hopes up, conversation is progress. And hopefully, it is progressing in a forward direction. SAG-AFTRA has amended the "interim agreement" to no longer include WGA penned scripts. This amendment comes after much uproar and criticism from union members due to the union greenlighting "indie" projects with interim agreement approval during the strike. Read more on both of these topics below.
