1 Hollywood Union votes against strike

A Hollywood Union has voted against strike action regarding the unsettled actors contract. The Union, The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), is the smaller of the two Hollywood actors unions, the larger Screen Actors Guild is still in negotiations with TV & Movie producers about a new actors contract.

The SAG is still negotiating and it looks unlikely they would be able to muster up enough support to call a strike. So for now, TV & Movie production is safe.
