Report Calls SAG Strike Unlikely

Jun 4, 2008  •  Post A Comment

A Wachovia Capital Markets report claimed that a Screen Actors Guild strike is “unlikely” and “improbable,” Media Daily News reports. Analyst Marci Ryvicker noted SAG has lost leverage following AFTRA’s deal with the AMPTP and that 44,000 SAG members belonging to AFTRA can work even if there is a SAG strike, the Web site says. She also claimed that not all SAG members are on the same page, making a 75% strike authorization vote threshold difficult, the Web site notes.
