Despite years of concerted effort and negotiating sessions, video game employers have steadfastly refused to reach a fair deal during our contract negotiations.
We head back to the table Oct. 17-19 with the goal of creating a fair contract that is rooted in industry standards and best practices. Based on past experience, we are not confident management is willing to make the changes necessary to bring this contract up to the standards of our other agreements. 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:
|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.|

Make sure that every actor you know — whether they are in the union or not — understands the importance of the issues and honors the strike. Not all games or video game employers will be struck.
