ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) to postpone its own primetime negotiations until May 5, 2008. A joint announcement from Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and Alliance of Motion Picture & Televison Producers (AMPTP) came a few minutes after AFTRA revealed its decision. The AMPTP said they made their request because they owe it to the entire industry to give the current SAG-AMPTP talks every opportunity to result in an agreement.
