SAG Delays Strike-Authorization Vote

Dec 23, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Screen Actors Guild said it will delay sending out ballots for a strike-authorization vote until at least Jan. 14, instead of the earlier scheduled Jan. 2, the Associated Press reports. The delay comes after some of SAG’s New York members objected to the vote, and a petition from a group of well-known actors fomented dissent. According to an e-mail to SAG board members from SAG Executive Director Doug Allen, SAG leaders will meet on Jan. 12 to “address the unfortunate division and restore consensus,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

  1. Good some movement in the right direction…come the New Year, let’s drop the whole notion of a SAG break in the works of a stuggling, but working industry.
