The Screen Actors Guild website has added several new video clips, including this 6-minute clip from William, from actors speaking out on the contract crisis currently facing members of the industry. William’s clip really lays out the reasons why Guild members need to fight for their rights now, why “temporarily” accepting the unacceptable is a path that cannot be reversed once taken, and what the short-and long-term implications will be if SAG members lose this battle.
The word “strike” is an alarming term and the reaction it brings is understandable, but it must be made clear that approving a strike authorization does NOT mean that a strike is inevitable. Guild members who lend their names to the Solidarity Campaign, and who vote “Yes” in support of a strike authorization, are merely arming the negotiating committee with the strength they need to have the talks continue.
Whether you are a SAG member or not, this is an issue that will touch us all in some way. Stay informed and aware by following developments on the official SAG website.Tags: SAG-AFTRA
