SAG vs. SAG vs. AFTRA

Screen Actors Guild members outside of Los Angeles are reportedly fuming over Monday's rally, which was billed as a pro-SAG "solidarity" event, but ended up having anti American Federation of Television and Radio Actor tones. Around 500 actors and supporters of the movement rallied outside SAG's Wilshire Blvd. headquarters chanting "Vote No!"
"We were told this would be a pro rally for the (SAG) negotiating team," an East Coast SAG member told the Hollywood Reporter. "Anything that was remotely anti-AFTRA, we were told by Alan Rosenberg and the national executive director, wouldn't happen. We were lied to by both of them."
According to Matt Kimbrough, AFTRA's negotiating committee chairman, SAG is spending more time talking about AFTRA's deal than focusing on making one for SAG. "Instead of using every day it has this month to aggressively and constructively negotiate for its members, the SAG committee spends days in internal meetings, planning the `Vote No!' campaign, staging rallies, putting staff on the marching line and spending our dues money trying to defeat it," he told the Daily News.
SAG and representatives from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers met yesterday and will continue talks today. Today marks the 27th time they've met.
