The following was released today by MEAA: The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA) sends our solidarity and support to the voice artists members of SAG-AFTRA.
In September, MEAA joined our voice to the international community of performers calling for listed gaming companies to negotiate fair compensation and safe work conditions for voice artists. Last week, we issued a bulletin to our members notifying them of the SAG-AFTRA strike.
We call on the listed gaming companies to genuinely address the voice artists’ issues of concern. Voice artists need sufficient rest breaks to protect against vocal strain, deserve fair payment for secondary uses, and have a right to be informed when they enter contract negotiations.
If any MEAA member hears word that these listed gaming companies are offering work in Australia, they are advised to notify the union and we will take immediate action.
Voice artists of SAG-AFTRA you have the support of Australian performers.
We stand with you.
