Screen Actors Guild contract about to expire

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is down to the wire for the Screen Actors Guild negotiations with the studio bosses. SAG leaders met with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reps today, but no word on how those talks are going.

Tonight, there was a brief statement on the SAG website.

The Screen Actors Guild national negotiating committee met with the employers at the AMPTP headquarters in Sherman Oaks today. We have concluded for the day and will resume on Sunday. We have no further comment.

Humm, that’s the same statement that has been released for the past few days.

I clicked over to the AMPTP website and found no update on the negotiations.

SAG’s contract officially expires at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, July first. SAG leadership has not taken a strike authorization vote, however, after the long bitter writers walkout – there is a lot of nail biting and frazzled nerves in Tinsel Town this
weekend.
