SAG & AMPTP Confirm Meetings for Next Tues-Weds

SAG and the AMPTP confirmed in a joint press release today that they will meet at AMPTP HQ next Tuesday and Wednesday, February 17-18, as was widely expected. In my view, negotiations will probably continue over a period of a few weeks, as a significant number of issues remain.

Meanwhile, MembershipFirst released a statement from key leader and SAG 1st VP Anne-Marie Johnson that shows they intend to torpedo a deal if possible. Specifically, the statement implies that any deal reached will probably be “disastrous” and will probably not be one “that can be endorsed by an overwhelming majority of the national board and most importantly, by over 50% of the membership.” Nice to know that MF still believes in unity.
