SAG-AMPTP Meeting Tentatively Planned for Early Next Week

http://digitalmedialaw.blogspot.com/2009/01/sag-amptp-meeting-planned-for-early.html

Sources close to the situation tell me that SAG and the AMPTP (studios) are planning for a meeting early next week, perhaps Tuesday. The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, caution that the logistics are still being arranged, and that it is as yet unsure whether all the necessary people can be available at that time, in which case a different date would need to be chosen. This would be the first meeting under the new SAG administration. SAG and the AMPTP told me they had no comment.

UPDATE: I’m now told the meeting is definitely on for Tuesday and Wednesday. It’s not clear if this will be a formal negotiating session, but a two day meeting does sound like more than a mere meet and greet. The AMPTP and SAG again had no comment.

On a separate matter, I’m told that David White, SAG’s new interim National Executive Director, received one or two standing ovations at his first meeting with SAG staff yesterday, with about 40 people present.
