Merry Xmas from SAG

That lump of coal SAG just put in your stocking is trading at $12.46 (+$0.86)...or as we Temps call it, an hours' pay. The following is the latest on the AMPTP/SAG negotiations.

Time for everyone to find a new career. I call dibs on being host of Jeopardy!

Member Town Hall Meeting in Los Angeles

The AMPTP has failed to address the needs of actors at the bargaining table despite the efforts of your negotiating team and the intervention of a federal mediator. Your national negotiating committee has directed that a strike authorization ballot be sent to paid up SAG members for their consideration and approval. This Town Hall meeting will give Hollywood members an update on the negotiations and a chance to ask questions about the upcoming strike authorization ballot referendum. A strike authorization from SAG members will show the AMPTP that the unique needs of actors cannot be addressed by a pattern of bargaining. Actors needs must be addressed for deal to be made. Don't miss this important meeting. Let your voice be heard.

When: Monday, December 8th, 2008
7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Where: Harmony Gold Preview House
7655 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90046

Note: Please Bring your SAG membership card (paid thru October 2008) for admittance. Parents/Guardians of SAG members under 18 years old may attend with the minor.

[Note: If the preceding pisses you off or makes you fear for your job, read the following Open Letter to SAG. Send it to your friends. Maybe someone will pay attention to us.]
