Mayor Adams' Statement on Tentative SAG-AFTRA Agreement With Studios to end Strike

November 8, 2023

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams tonight released the following statement after SAG-AFTRA announced a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers:

“As New York City sets an all-time high jobs record and enters a new chapter of our recovery, the film and TV industry remains critical to a strong, inclusive economic future for our city. We are thrilled to hear that SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative agreement that would allow thousands of small businesses and 185,000 New Yorkers to get back to work with good jobs, fair wages, and strong protections that will allow the industry to continue to grow and thrive. Our administration is investing in this critical industry with major projects like the cutting-edge Sunset Pier 94 Studios in Manhattan that, alone, is set to create more than 1,700 jobs for New Yorkers, and we’ve strengthened the state film tax credit to keep productions here. Once this tentative agreement is ratified, film and TV will continue to be at the center of not only the city’s economy but also its identity once again.”
