SAG Seeks Support for Strike Vote

Oct 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Screen Actors Guild’s negotiating committee is asking the union’s national board to call a strike authorization vote of the union’s members after the studios rebuffed a request to resume bargaining, the Hollywood Reporter says. If the newly elected national board agrees when it meets Oct. 18, a vote will be held, with a 75% “yes” total needed to authorize a strike when board decides it is “necessary and unavoidable.” The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers questioned the timing of the move in light of the current national economic climate, Deadline Hollywood Daily reports.

    DGA & WGA understand today’s reality.
