ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Phase One, an agreement that can help actors to negotiate as equal partners in contract talks with producers and advertisers, which was recently upheld by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). This agreement was reached between SAG and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists in 1981. Phase One is considered as an essential arrangement if actors are to stand up to producers, keep their benefits, acquire new ones, and not be whipsawed by their own unions.
