SAG Moderates Will Continue Against Strike

Jan 15, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Screen Actors Guild moderates said on Wednesday they will continue to work to stop the union’s strike authorization vote, Daily Variety says. The moderate failed to oust national executive director Doug Allen at a meeting earlier this week. New York board member Paul Christie said he estimated the meeting had cost $100,000 and that Allen and SAG President Alan Rosenberg should resign for failing to sign deals on the eight contracts that expired last year. Meanwhile, Allen wrote in a letter Wednesday to SAG’s national board members that, rather than seeking a strike vote, he will send members the studios’ June 30 contract proposal for a vote, DeadlineHollywoodDaily reports.
