SAG should announce on Monday its timetable for the strike authorization vote and aftermath. Also that night, SAG will be holding a “Town Hall Meeting” for membership:
Member Town Hall Meeting in Los Angeles
The AMPTP has failed to address the needs of actors at the bargaining table despite the efforts of your negotiating team and the intervention of a federal mediator. Your national negotiating committee has directed that a strike authorization ballot be sent to paid up SAG members for their consideration and approval. This Town Hall meeting will give Hollywood members an update on the negotiations and a chance to ask questions about the upcoming strike authorization ballot referendum. A strike authorization from SAG members will show the AMPTP that the unique needs of actors cannot be addressed by a pattern of bargaining. Actors needs must be addressed for deal to be made. Don’t miss this important meeting. Let your voice be heard.
When: Monday, December 8th, 2008
7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Where: Harmony Gold Preview House
7655 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90046
Note: Please Bring your SAG membership card (paid thru October 2008) for admittance. Parents/Guardians of SAG members under 18 years old may attend with the minor
