2023 MBA Tentative Agreement (News Release)
The WGA reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on a new three-year Minimum Basic Agreement (MBA). On September 26th, the Negotiating Committee, the WGAW Board and WGAE Council all voted unanimously to recommend the agreement.
The MBA will now go to both guilds’ memberships for a ratification vote. Eligible voters will be able to vote from October 2nd through October 9th, and will receive ballot and ratification materials when the vote opens.
The WGAW Board and WGAE Council also voted to lift the restraining order and end the strike as of 12:01 am PT/3:01 am ET on Wednesday, September 27th. This allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.
Now that we have finalized the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), we can share details of this exceptional deal, with gains and protections for members in every sector of the business:
MBA 2023 Contract Materials
- Members can read the complete tentative agreement, which is codified in this Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)
- We are also providing a short Summary of the MOA
- Here is an update of the 2-pager (now a 7-pager) that compares the status of negotiations on May 1st and what we achieved on September 24 after 146 days on strike
- Strike Termination Agreement
Once again, #SagAftraMembers have come together in support of their peers, voting overwhelmingly — with 98.32% in favor — to approve a strike authorization on the Interactive Media Agreement ahead of a return to negotiations. https://t.co/x5e2Fj6yen— SAG-AFTRA (@sagaftra) September 26, 2023

Congrats to the Writers Guild of America (WGA) for striking a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) earlier today!
With the 146-day-long labor dispute by the WGA set to conclude soon, all eyes will be focused on ending the impasse between the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and AMPTP next... Stay tuned.
