One of the longest and broadest labor walkouts in the history of the U.S. entertainment industry is drawing to a seemingly amicable close. A 148-day strike by the Writers Guild of America was settled in September, and an overlapping 118-day strike by the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) was suspended last week after negotiators hammered out a new employment contract with major Hollywood studios, which tens of thousands of unionized actors are widely expected to approve in the coming weeks.
