In a joint message published on the website of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) in the US, it was announced that steps have been taken to decide to strike due to the failure of the negotiations with the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) on artists' salaries and job security against artificial intelligence.
It was stated that negotiations with AMPTP were held in "good faith" but the response to the proposals of the other side was "inadequate" and a "fair agreement" could not be reached.
It was noted that statements will be made on the subject after the strike decision is made by the general assembly of SAG-AFTRA.
It is thought that the strike in question will cause delays in TV series and movie screenings in Hollywood and financial damage for production companies.
The SAG-AFTRA strike, along with a strike by screenwriters in the US for the same reason, could lead to an industry-wide "shutdown" of Hollywood for the first time since 1960.
In recent years, with the rapid increase in the annual production of TV series and movies, screenwriters say they are working under more difficult conditions and receiving less pay in return.
The strike, which was launched by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) on May 2, could lead to delays in movie releases.
The last time screenwriters went on strike was in 2007, and the 100-day work stoppage caused a loss of about 2 billion dollars.
