Regarding: SAG-AFTRA One Year Contract
The majority of the SAG Hollywood Division Board of Directors,(the representatives of SAG members who generate over 66% of the TV/Theatrical revenues), via a phone poll, have emphatically rejected the One-Year Extension contract.
The joint SAG/AFTRA National Boards approved the release of a Con statement that will address the concerns of those who rejected the deal.
The last time the Minority Report Came up before the Joint Policy Board in 1998, it was guaranteed up to 1000 words! Now it has been limited to 350 Words! Lets face it, those pushing this phony extension really want to limit the extension of the rebuttal!
