SAG says no deal to the studio bosses

Today, the Screen Actors Guild handed the AMPTP a response to its final offer. While the producers were looking for a “yes” to everything, SAG tossed out some counter proposals instead. The AMPTP got really ticked about that. Apparently,  the AMPTP had expected SAG to rubber-stamp the deal like, ah, that other actors’ union.

On its website, the AMPTP slammed SAG for not falling in line with AFTRA. “The last thing we need is a long, hot, summer of labor strife …” according to a posted statement.

Also, the producers called on SAG leaders to take their final offer to the union membership for a vote. SAG leaders reportedly rejected that idea straight out.

What happens next is anybody’s guess.
