SAG’s strife continues


After nearly being fired last week by the moderate wing of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) national board, the Guild’s national executive director Doug Allen has accused the moderates for having compromised his strike strategy. Allen still wants to have one last go at re-negotiating SAG’s stalemated contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) before issuing a strike authorisation vote.

SAG has some 110,000 members, none of whom are relishing the split in their national board leadership. The moderate wing holds that the current impasse with the AMPTP is due to Allen’s bad handling of the negotiations and are against a strike authorization (Source: Variety).
