SAG and the mediator


The Screen Actors Guild of America (SAG) has announced that it has met with a federal mediator regarding its deadlocked negotiations with studio and network bosses as represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). SAG’s contract expired on 30 June this year and no progress has been made in signing a new one as neither SAG nor the AMPTP will back down on certain key issues, one being new media residuals.

Studio Briefing reports that according to industry observers, the mediator will be unlikely to break the stalemate. In this event, SAG will probably issue strike-authorization ballots to its members by the end of November.
