ABSTRACT
A group of Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Hollywood board members who oppose the recently negotiated one-year TV/theatrical contract extension have stepped up their attack by encouraging the general membership to vote against the proposal in order to force negotiators to rush through a new deal. The opponents say they fear reprisal from employers if they speak out individually, so they are issuing only group statements like the "con statement" that will express their views on ballots now reaching members. Leaders of SAG and AFTRA, which jointly reached the extension with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on February 18, 2004 are confident that the referendum will receive the required simple majority of their combined 140,000 members.
