Hollywood Actors Move Closer to Strike

Posted: December 11th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hollywood Actors Move Closer to StrikeSubmit Comment
The Screen Actors Guild, the union representing Hollywood's actors, has moved a step closer to a strike that could cripple TV and film production in the US.

SAG announced that it would be sending strike ballots to its 120,000 plus members on January 2nd, seeking the 75 percent approval rating that would allow the union to call a strike. The votes will be tabulated on January 23rd.

SAG has been working without a contract since June and is the last Hollywood union without a new deal. It is holding out for higher payments for internet productions and for increased benefits for actors when external events such as an earthquake or a strike by another union stops production.

The screenwriters' guild reached a deal earlier this year after a lengthy strike that cost the Los Angeles economy an estimated $3 billion. The producers' umbrella group the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers claims that the actors have already foregone $37 million in increased payments by not agreeing to a similar deal.

Are you worried that fans will get screwed by this again?

I hate these guilds. They're killing tv and movies. Don't they make enough money where internet productions really shouldn't matter?

These poor actors. They're getting screwed. Do you have any idea how much insurance cost on a Ferrari?

Screw them! There are plenty of non-union actors in this world to fill the void. If these guilds want to be greedy (especially at a time when the economy isn't exactly strong) then stop giving them work and see how soon they want to strike a deal for less money.

It's pathetic that some people have to struggle while the economy is down instead of everyone struggling together. We should strike on anyone who is striking. It will be a strike to stop the strike.
