ABSTRACT
The article reports that Screen Actors Guild's (SAG) president Alan Rosenberg and SAG chief negotiator Doug Allen are aiming to regain negotiating leverage by going against American Federation of Television and Radio Artists' (AFTRA) recent deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers. It was the first time AFTRA negotiated the contract without SAG in 27 years. As stated, the decision to bargain separately increased the animosity between SAG and AFTRA.
