AFTRA vs Gaming SAGs

Divided Hollywood actors reject video game deal announces that while AFTRA has approved a new contract relating to game development (story), the Screen Actors Guild has rejected the deal. The perspective in the story is that this won't really have much impact:
But the vote was unlikely to have any effect since most games are produced with non-union talent.

In addition, the three-year contract has already been approved by the smaller American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, or AFTRA, which negotiated the deal jointly with the actors guild.

Many actors who do voice-over work in games belong to both unions, and will therefore be covered by AFTRA. All pension and health contributions will go to that union and not to the Screen Actors Guild, or SAG.

Read the article. They got a raise in scale, not royalties.

The deal offered by leading gaming companies including Electronic Arts Inc. (Nasdaq:ERTS - news) and Activision Inc. (Nasdaq:ATVI - news) offered to boost wages for voice-over and other performers by 36 percent over the life of the contract. However, the unions were unable to obtain residuals, or a share in the revenues generated by the video games they perform in.
