ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Directors Guild of America (DGA) will open labor talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) in early 2008. DGA president Michael Apted and negotiations-committee chair Gil Cates say they will hold off talks to give the striking Writers Guild of America (WGA) more time to negotiate with the AMPTP. Talks between the WGA and AMPTP have stalled, and the WGA has filed charges of bad faith bargaining on the part of the AMPTP.
