The American Federation of Musicians (AFM) will begin negotiations for a new contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), which may lead to a strike in Hollywood. The AFM is seeking a contract that reflects the current state of streaming media, including AI protection, increased wages, improved working conditions, and residual payments for streaming content. Musicians who record soundtracks for streaming content currently make 75% less due to reduced residual income. The AFM has approximately 70,000 members in the US and Canada, and its president, Tino Gagliardi, stated that the union will do whatever it takes to improve the lives of musicians. The AMPTP expressed its willingness to negotiate with the AFM and recognize the value that musicians bring to the industry. The negotiations follow strikes by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) in 2023. Another union, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), which represents production crew members, may also strike in 2024. A lengthy strike by the IATSE could have serious consequences for the studios and the California economy. Gagliardi emphasized the unity among entertainment industry workers and their shared fight for better conditions.
