“The AMPTP member companies congratulate SAG-AFTRA on the ratification of its new contract, which represents historic gains and protections for performers. With this vote, the industry and the jobs it supports will be able to return in full force.”

It echoes a similar statement that the group, which consists of companies including Netflix, NBCUniversal, Warner Bros. Discovery and Disney as well as others, put out after the WGA membership ratified the writers deal.

In October, the Carol Lombardini-led AMPTP noted: “The AMPTP member companies congratulate the WGA on the ratification of its new contract, which represents meaningful gains and protections for writers. It is important progress for our industry that writers are back to work.”
