President Joe Biden praised SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP on Thursday for reaching a tentative agreement to end the actors strike, which has paralyzed the entertainment industry for four months.

“When both sides come to the table to negotiate in earnest, they can make businesses stronger and allow workers to secure pay and benefits that help them raise families and retire with dignity,” Biden said in a statement.

Support for labor and unions has been a focus of Biden’s administration, and he has also put a renewed focus on artificial intelligence, which was a major sticking point in the dispute between the studios and SAG. The Biden Administration was also active in trying to resolve the divide between SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP before the strike began.

The president was not the only politician to weigh in on the deal. New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Mayor Eric Adams, and California Governor Gavin Newsom also released statements praising the agreement.

“I’m thankful that we can now get this iconic industry back to work, not only for our writers and actors but also the more than 2 million workers who power our world-class entertainment sector,” Newsom said.
