SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity announced on Thursday that they have reached an agreement on how to handle jurisdiction over recording and streaming of stage shows, ending a dispute triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this year, Actors Equity accused SAG-AFTRA of undermining its bargaining power by negotiating lower-paying deals with theaters for streaming productions at a time when such productions are the only means of income for many stage actors who are out of work due to the pandemic.
