Video game voice actors who belong to SAG/AFTRA have voted to strike, reports BBC News, following recent indications a work stoppage might be coming over royalties and working conditions in the industry. 96% of union members support the strike, which needed a 75% majority, and demands include residuals, stunt pay for "vocally stressful" parts, and limits on long recording sessions. At this point the vote remains a negotiating position, as it does not mean the union is on strike: "It is important to note that the referendum result does not mean that members are on strike, rather, it gives the National Board the authority to declare a strike," the union explains in a statement. "With this result in hand, the Negotiating Committee will seek to return to the bargaining table and continue to press for a fair resolution on behalf of performers working in video games."
