SAG-AFTRA strikers looking to 'rock the city' in Times Square rally
SAG-AFTRA took their fight for fair compensation and better treatment to Times Square, saying their mission is to "rock the city."
The strikes come as the union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have so far not been able to agree on a new contract. The union members are looking for fair compensation and more job security.
They're also asking for protection from artificial intelligence and higher residual payments when it comes to streaming platforms.
Actors in Times Square striking Tuesday say they are fighting for the soul of their industry and their livelihood. SAG-AFTRA represents 160,000 media professionals across the country.
The strike marks the first time in 60 years that actors and writers have gone on strike together.
