Thu, Nov 9th 2023 03:15 pm

Gov. Kathy Hochul offered the following statement on Wednesday: “I am pleased to see that SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP have reached a tentative agreement to end the actors’ strike. New York's film and television industry is critical to our state's economy, creating 65,000 jobs in the past year and $35 billion in economic activity over the past decade. Now that the WGA-AMPTP deal has been ratified and a tentative agreement has been reached between SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP, it's my hope that productions can resume and this critical economic activity can continue. This industry is a powerful economic engine and a key source of good-paying union jobs, and I hope both parties can move quickly toward a final agreement that gets New York’s film and television industry back on track.”
