With 74.22 votes in support and 25.78 per cent, artists` unions accepted the agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The turnout, significantly higher than in the 2017 referendum, was 27% of the 160,000 members represented by the union. SAG-AFTRA (« Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists ») is a union representing more than 160,000 film and television artists, radio actors, video games, radio and television advertisers, news anchors, singers and recording artists (both royalty artists and background singers) , performers in commercials and actors working as stuntmen and specialized acts. It is dedicated to protecting the interests of its members and improving wages, working hours and working conditions, and it does so through a series of contractual agreements (some of which are grouped above) applicable when one of its members participates in a production. « Creating safe, dignified and fair jobs in an industry where nudity and privacy are often part of the job is a challenge, but not insurmountable. Therefore, the fact that SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP have entered into an agreement that does not contain important health and safety measures is deeply disappointing and dangerous. Today, almost a hundred years later, SAG-AFTRA is still committed to organizing all work under their jurisdictions, negotiating the best wages, working conditions, health and retirement services, creating employment opportunities, enforcing contracts and protecting SAG-AFTRA members from unauthorized use of their work. However, the work of the Union is not possible without the cooperation of the hereditary industry, which is not part of the union, in particular the studio and production factories. Through collective agreements and subsequent contracts, SAG-AFTRA can govern and protect those who work in a performance role in the entertainment industry. The prices of the daily and weekly headliners under this agreement are set at 65% of the scale of the basic agreement.
