ABSTRACT
The article reports that a divided Hollywood board of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has asked guild leaders to send without a recommendation, the final contract offer from movie and television producers to SAG members for their vote. The move, backed by Membership First, was previously rejected by the national board. The guild has been locked in a stalemate with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers since the TV and film contract expired June 30, 2008.
