ATU International President John Costa’s message of solidarity with striking SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild members

“The ATU stands in solidarity with SAG-AFTRA members, who are joining the Writers Guild in a historic industry-stopping strike for the first time since 1960. Writers Guild members have already been on the picket lines for over 70 days. These workers are bravely taking a stand to create a brighter future for artists everywhere.

“This strike isn’t just a battle for fair compensation. It’s a movement to protect the very essence of art and the integrity of creativity. With the unity of their purpose and the strength of their resolve, striking workers remind us that our voices can never be silenced. Today, we stand beside our union siblings to amplify their message and our collective power to reshape the industry for the better.”
