More Turmoil Within SAG

With the Screen Actors Guild strike already approved, all the execs need to do is send the word out and the entire industry stops, almost like it did during the WGA strike a little over a year ago.  Earlier last year, AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) made some headway with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, with some objections by SAG.  This does not bode well for the moderates within the Screen Actors Guild who are trying to re-start negotiations with the AMPTP.

In the last two days, the Screen Actors Guild has been full of sound and fury, signifying … the status quo.
After a filibuster-filled 30-hour board meeting Monday and Tuesday that was meant to bring some resolution to the raging divisions within the guild, nothing has changed: Though moderates have a majority on the SAG board, the stall tactics prevented a vote on a measure that would have ousted Doug Allen as chief negotiator, canceled the strike authorization vote and replaced the negotiating committee.
And the battle’s probably not over. SAG noted after the meeting that no date’s been set for sending out the referendum ballots and then added it would not comment further.
