ABSTRACT
The article reports on the film-television (TV) contract negotiations between Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and American Federation of Television & Radio Artists (AFTRA) with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) in the U.S. It notes that SAG has an advantage over AFTRA in persuading back its members for the referendum. On the other hand, AFTRA has revamped the bargaining committee on a 9-1 basis since SAG takes in 90% of the earning under the contract.
