The Strike: Part 2

Here we go again! 

Hollywood actors guild to seek strike
Marathon talks fail to end dispute between 120,000-member SAG, studios

LOS ANGELES – The Screen Actors Guild said Saturday it will ask its members to authorize a strike after its first contract talks in four months with Hollywood studios failed despite the help of a federal mediator.

The guild said it adjourned talks overnight with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers after two marathon sessions with federal mediator Juan Carlos Gonzalez.

SAG — representing more than 120,000 actors in movies, television and other media — said in a statement it would launch a “full-scale education campaign in support of a strike authorization.”

“We have already made difficult decisions and sacrifices in an attempt to reach agreement,” the statement said. “Now it’s time for SAG members to stand united and empower the national negotiating committee to bargain with the strength of a possible work stoppage behind them.”

Oh boy! Things are starting to heat up in Hollywood.
