The Screen Actors Guild announced early Saturday that it would seek a strike authorization from its membership.
SAG and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have been operating without a contract since July 1.
The announcement comes just days after the Nov. 5 first anniversary of the launch of the Writers Guild of America Strike -- a strike from which the TV industry continues to reel.
"We remain committed to avoiding a strike but now more than ever we cannot allow our employers to experiment with our careers," the guild said. "The WGA has already learned that the new media terms they agreed to with the AMPTP are not being honored. We cannot allow our employers to undermine the futures of our members and their families."
