LOS ANGELES (November 22, 2016) – The union representing Canadian voiceover and performance capture performers has joined with SAG-AFTRA and will help prevent struck video game work from crossing the northern border.

ACTRA and SAG-AFTRA recently strengthened their cooperation for cross-border labor protections and partnered on a joint event at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Now, ACTRA has joined SAG-AFTRA in support of its strike of 11 video game corporations.

SAG-AFTRA tried for more than 19 months to negotiate a new deal with employers in the video game industry. Meanwhile, performers have been governed by the more than two-decade old contract still in place. That has left voice actors without the protections necessary to work in the modern video game industry.
