ABSTRACT
In a move that eliminated the threat of a de facto strike and also secured significant gains for Hollywood's actors, negotiators for SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers agreed to extend their current TV-theatrical contract by one year. The guilds were particularly pleased with a historic agreement allowing SAG and AFTRA to begin jointly negotiating terms and conditions of all primetime scripted television programming. The extension received overwhelming approval from the joint SAG-AFTRA national board and goes next to the two guilds' combined 140,000 members for a vote. SAG and AFTRA leaders expect the referendum to achieve the required simple majority for approval.
