Los Angeles — SAG-AFTRA today released the following statement in response to various media inquiries regarding Gearbox Software, L.L.C.’s latest release, Borderlands 3:
"We applaud any member who stands up for workplace fairness and the integrity of their creative work. It is a courageous decision to act in the best interests of one's fellow SAG-AFTRA members and this honors all working people.
"The misguided decision by Gearbox to deny their performers the opportunity to have fair union wages, a safe workplace and the possibility of health care coverage for their families, is unfortunate.
"We attempted to sign Gearbox to a union agreement. They refused and disengaged from those talks.
"We look forward to hearing from any Gearbox performer who is interested in the many protections a union agreement offers actors."
