SAG Starts Studio Talks Without AFTRA

Apr 15, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Screen Actors Guild yesterday began negotiations with studios for a primetime contract without the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists after AFTRA turned down SAG’s effort to make peace with the smaller union, Daily Variety reports. AFTRA ended a 27-year bargaining relationship with SAG last month after accusing SAG of trying to take over the representation of actors in the soap opera “The Bold and the Beautiful,” the newspaper says.

  1. As a long time AFTRA member, it has always been ovious to me that SAG looked down their noses at us radio/TV ‘peons.’ In SAG’s mind the MOVIE STARS were in a world of their own. Seriously though, it would be better for all performers to belong to one union so they could shift from one job to another seamlessly.
