The article presents information on the national board meeting of Screen Actors Guild (SAG) held last week. Doug Allen, chief negotiator and national executive director of the SAG, was almost fired at the meeting. The session included allegations of voter fraud and an eight-hour debate to extend the meeting by three hours. The sources contended that the moderates had the votes to pass their measure, which would have removed Allen as chief negotiator.
