Mayor Bass issues statement after actors union vote to strike

LOS ANGELES – Mayor Karen Bass today issued the following statement after SAG-AFTRA, which represents 160,000 members, voted unanimously to strike: 
"With more than one hundred thousand workers now participating in an unprecedented strike, it is clear the entertainment industry is at a historic inflection point. This affects all of us and is essential to our overall economy. I call upon all sides to come to the table and work around the clock until an equitable agreement is reached. This is an urgent issue that must be resolved and I will be working to make that happen."
