I know it's lame, but please be certainly to only post 1/4 of the entire article and then to link to the article (apologies if this is only 1/4 and the link was just forgotten). This is so that we stay within the Fair Use laws and avoid any issues with copyright.

Michael is allergic to lawsuits and I'm sure most of the rest of us are too! :bounce:

Thanks!

I have a feeling that the SAG members will vote no on this,but only because of the economic situation. I agree that they deserve to be paid well for any and all work they do,but at this time,I believe they would be better served to take the producers'offer-it may not be the best,but it would be better than a strike!

RobRoy,I read the article earlier and there wasn't any link that I remember.

I agree with you Gem that they should vote "no" to strike action as everyone is having to tighten their belts at the moment but I wouldn't be at all surprised if they do decide to go on strike (I do realise that the majority of actors don't earn very much, but nor do many other professions). I'm sure there will be other years to go to the bargaining table.....

Very true Harmony, the economy is hitting many very hard, not just actors and many folks are underpaid for what they do!!!! I won't be surprised if the strike either. I guess we will find out in time.
