In Fighting

Good news for the media moguls!

A band of actors are challenging the leadership of the Screen Actors Guild in an upcoming election because they're not happy with how the union has handled deal negotiations with the studios.

They're also displeased with the rift that's developed between SAG and the 'other' actors union, AFTRA.

Actors have been working without a contract since June 30th, the date its 3-year contract with the moguls expired.

The SAG group called 'Membership First' has been in control of the union's national board since the current guild president was elected three years ago.

Membership First supporters include Elliott Gould and Valerie Harper.

The group of challengers calls itself "Unite for Strength". Their goal is to win a majority control of the union board by Membership First.

Unite for Strength members include Adam Arkin, Amy Brenneman, Doug Savant, and Kate Walsh.

"We can no longer afford leaders who sow division," Unite for Strength leader Ned Vaughn said.

An insider shines a light on what would likely happen, should Unite for Strength wrestle control:

"If the challenge slate gains control, it will probably move to fire the executive director, change the composition of the negotiating committee, and the studios will probably sit down with them pretty promptly and negotiate a deal."

So, no strike?!

Election ballots will go out to members on August 19th and are due back to the union by September 18th.

Leave it to actors to stir up drama!

    the problem here is that you got a bunch of hicks and rednecks that don't know their ass from their face and want to change our life style.go back to texas,alabama,missisipi or where ever you came from and let us the real californians or the ones that come from a civilized state handle this!!!!!!!! i want freedom from these strange ignorant people (bush voters) that are slowly taking over our southland.



  26. 26

    Wow, is that fair? Kate Walsh is a talented actor and many of her fans, me included, are anxiously awaiting a 2nd season of Private Practice. Sure she might be looking for an alternative to the strike, isn't that what we all want? Why villanize her for that???

    this way bound to happen. remember when those a-holes (valerie harper, et al) were fighting former sag-pres, melissa gilbert, and trashing her & her platform??? this was what she was trying to prevent. now they're having to clean up the mess. thanks a lot, sag voters!

    Maybe you should look at all the in fighting that is going on with SAG and AFTRA before you call this in fighting, looks to me like they are trying to stop it all, which will be BAD news for the media moguls, because SAG fighting with AFTRA is exactly what they want.

    Furthermore wtf are the SAG board doing now to get a new contract in terms of resuming negotiations, oh that is right NOTHING, they have called off the negotiations, and refuse to put the probable contract to the general SAG membership for a vote, how is that productive?

    GO KATE WALSH! Get rid of the old foogies and bring about some change!

    how much fuckinh money do these people want? don't tell me 'i got into acting because i felt a passion fo rit" bullshit! they smell money. it's outrageous what actors are paid these days.

    You dumb morons. These actors are trying to stop a strike from happening. That is a good thing. You really want a bunch of rich actors to go on strike while the crew members (who live pay check to pay check) struggle just like they did during the writers strike. Go Kate and the others!

    Re: Geoff – geoff, u obviously don't know any working actors or what it takes to actually be successful at it. choosing acting instead of a steady "normal american job" is a huge risk and only the best make it. there's a reason they make what they do..not just anyone can be great at it or morons like you would be doing it too. please don't post things you don't know anything about. the actors are fighting for the same types of things would at your job: fair compensation for your trade. PERIOD. the problems with SAG internally has to do with political splits and egos. imagine someone came & screwed with your well-being and caused you to stop working for their personal cause? you'd try anything in your power to keep the strike from happening. actors and their families have mouths to feed, including their co-workers who are on production,:assistants, makeup artists, drivers, security, kraft services, etc…



  37. 37

    Why did you choose such an ugly picture? In person, she looks flawless.

  38. Trout says – reply to this

    People currently on the SAG board:
    Renee Aubry 7 credits last one 1979
    Angel Tompkins last credit 1992
    Sumi Haru 6 credits last one 1979
    Nancy Sinatra last acting credit in 1968

    How can these people represent actors that actually work?
    Or Jenny Worman, 4 credits, all in this century bless her, all with names like "woman in audience", what does she know? What experience does she have from being an extra 4 times?

    I couldn't care any less than I do about actors and their unions. What I don't understand is how lousy Kate Walsh looks in that pic. She looks like a cross between Cruella McCain and Scary Messica Barker.

    Let's see… People who get paid to play dress up and pretend and who contribute pretty much nothing to society except to set bad examples for our children are fighting about money. Hmm, let me think about that. Who cares! Let me know when someone actually important starts to have problems.

    Re: Trout
    Trout is totally right! The "actors" that are in power are hardly a "voice of the masses". The majority of them are out-of-work-actors. The two unions NEED to merge and have a united front. All of this in-fighting (which is really what it is- AFTRA ans SAG are all actors and they're all fighting for the same rights) This rift started back in 2000 during the Commercial Strike… get the eff over the BS and stand together to get what you deserve.

    Why do you think uniting is a bad thing?Amy Brennenman and others are trying their best to prevent another crippling strike.They are not traitors, they are trying to save this industry.Amy Brennamen is one of the smartest people in Hollywood.This is a good thing.There needs to be some change because the people presently at the top do not seem to want to negotiate. I hope this is settled because the TV crews do not deserve this. Adam Arkin is amazing and brilliant. From what I've heard, Kate Walsh is a doll (not a traitor-that's Katie Hi-Gul). I hope this works.
