A Hollywood strike was averted as film and TV production workers reached a deal with studios and streaming services

A union has agreed to a new contract after weeks of talks ahead of a deadline, with a deal outlining changes in working conditions and pay.

Updated Oct. 16, 2021 10:18 pm ETLOS ANGELES—The film and television industry narrowly avoided a shutdown of production on Saturday evening after the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees reached a last-minute, tentative agreement with studios and streaming services over worker demands.

IATSE leaders had been in talks for weeks with the organization representing studios and streaming services, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. IATSE leaders had set a strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. PT on Monday.The agreement reached Saturday covers some 40,000 film and television workers who are members of 13 local IATSE unions on the West Coast. Under the new contract, which must still be ratified by workers, IATSE members will see boosted pay on streaming-service productions and a reduction in the amount of time members work without a break, among other changes.

“This is a Hollywood ending,” said IATSE International President Matthew Loeb. “We went toe to toe with some of the richest and most powerful entertainment and tech companies in the world.”A spokesperson for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers confirmed the agreement.
