Afrta Aproves Contract

Dear Friends,

AFTRA voters have approved the interactive contract by a margin of
about 2 to 1. The vote apparently went out to over 2200 AFTRA members
who have worked in interactive games over the past three years. I’m
going to guess that most all members who voted on this on the AFTRA
side are also SAG members, but I have no data on this.

I’m not sure where this leaves SAG or the out-of-sync interactive
contracts, with SAG’s caucuses having rejected the terms. The SAG
national caucus meetings got I believe only about 115 voters
nationally, with nearly 2 to 1 voting against the contract, although
all those opposed were here in Los Angeles only. All other cities
voted to approve it.

I suppose it is now up to us (along with our agents) to either accept
“atmospheric” work in interactive games or not.
