Voice Actors Threaten to Strike Against 11 Game Companies

The Screen Actors Guild Union was publicly considering going on strike last fall to secure better pay and protection for physically demanding work. This year they’ve decided on a list of specific companies to strike unless contract negotiations go well.

A post on the SAG-AFTRA’s website states that “unless you hear differently from us, effective Oct. 21 at 12:01 a. m., you should be prepared to strike the following video game employers with regard to all games that went into production after Feb. 17, 2015.”

A few actors have even expressed their support of the Union with #performancematters on Twitter.

The list of Game Companies that they will strike are:

Activision Publishing, Inc.

Blindlight, LLC

Corps of Discovery Films

Disney Character Voices, Inc.

Electronic Arts Productions, Inc.

Formosa Interactive, LLC

Insomniac Games, Inc.

Interactive Associates, Inc.

Take 2 Interactive Software

VoiceWorks Productions, Inc.

WB Games, Inc.

While the exact details of the sought-after contracts are unclear, this will definitely impact the gaming community if negotiations don’t go well.
