After more than two months of negotiations, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) have reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers for a three year contract that includes a increase in benefit contributions and a wage increase of six percent.
