The Screen Actors Guild received a “last, best and final offer” from the studios Monday as the union’s contact was due to expire early Tuesday morning, the Hollywood Reporter says. The studios say the industry is in a “de facto strike” and that SAG members will be losing $2.5 million every day until an agreement is reached, and that other unions will be out $13.5 million per day.The 42-page contract is similar to pacts accepted by other unions earlier this year, including the Writers Guild of America, which went on strike. SAG says that although the current offer does not address some of the union’s key negotiating points. Deadline Hollywood Daily notes the WGA received 10 “last” offers before a contract settlement was reached and offers more details from behind the scene.
