October 03, 2023

That’s the word from SAG-AFTRA and studio CEOS after meeting officially Monday for the first time since the 160,000-strong guild went out of strike on July 14 – they plan to do it again. “SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP met for a full day bargaining session and have concluded. In that vein, the parties are said to feel that both sides are treating the talks with the “care” and seriousness they deserve, we hear. “It won’t be as fast as WGA,” he noted as Writers Guild members once again were out on the picket lines Monday for a Day of Solidarity with SAG-AFTRA. While there is optimism about progress, there is upset over feature and TV production being stalled from the studio and talent rep side.
