Back in May, the Writers Guild of America went on strike after they failed to negotiate a deal with Hollywood studios. WGA members have been vocal about their concerns about working conditions across the industry, including many outlined and echoed by SAG members. In their sign-off, actors ask their leadership to “push for change” and to ensure the protections they’re asking for.
