SAG President Defends Call for Strike Vote

Nov 24, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg said he felt that the union had no choice but to call for a strike authorization vote because the AMPTP “have not moved one iota in our direction,” KTLA reports. Rosenberg, who appeared on “The KTLA Morning News” on Monday, said a strike authorization vote was needed “to put bullets in our gun in order to get a deal,” the Web site says. The AMPTP issued a statement, calling SAG “tone-deaf” for provoking a possible strike during an already difficult economic time, the Web site notes.
