(Before It's News)

Fight Back News Service is circulating the following Nov. 19 statement from the World Federation of Trade Unions.

The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers in every corner of the globe, sends its strong message of solidarity to the members of the SAG-AFTRA union of performing artists striking to achieve their just demands against the video game industry.

SAG-AFTRA members picketed Insomniac Games, Inc. in Burbank, CA. on Thursday. It was the union’s third picket since it began striking 11 video game corporations Oct. 21. SAG-AFTRA’s pickets of WB Games, Inc. and Voiceworks Productions, Inc. on Nov. 3 and EA on Oct. 24 drew some 700 members and supporters combined.

Momentum from SAG-AFTRA’s largest picket of the month-old video game strike will help raise awareness in the gaming community as the holiday season approaches.

“Each picket has brought out more members than the last.” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. “SAG-AFTRA members and our allies support this action and are continually raising the pressure on the video game companies to come back to the bargaining table with fair proposals so we can reach a deal.”

SAG-AFTRA is planning additional virtual actions during the holiday season to raise awareness in the gaming community of the video game corporations’ unfair treatment of SAG-AFTRA performers.
