The crew voted to ratify a union agreement

The strike surrounding Bravo's Shahs of Sunset has ended.

The striking crew of the Bravo series voted unanimously to ratify a union agreement, the Motion Picture Editors Guild I.A.T.S.E. Local 700 wrote on its Facebook page on Friday.

The strike began on Sept. 10, with editors picketing outside the offices of Shahs producer Ryan Seacrest Productions. The crew was seeking the right to unionize.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that RSP and I.A.T.S.E. reached a deal and that production would resume immediately.   

Bravo took over production of the series on Sept. 26 after RSP said it could no longer work with the striking editors. At the time, sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Bravo had opted not to rehire the editors for the fourth season of its reality show.

The strike delayed the show's season premiere, which was originally slated for Oct. 13.

Bravo did not immediately respond to request for comment. RSP declined to comment.
