SAG, AMPTP Talks Kick Off

 

Negotiators for SAG and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers sat down for the first time Tuesday to begin what is expected to be two weeks of intense talks on the actors union contract, which expires June 30.

Among the issues the union -- led by chief negotiator Doug Allen and president Alan Rosenberg -- is bringing to the table are residuals on new media, more money for DVD/home video and changes to health and pension benefits.

The talks come at a crucial time with the industry is still recovering from the 100-day WGA strike. The threat of proatacted negotiations -- and the possibility of an actors' strike -- already has caused studios to scale back production schedules for film and TV.
