SAG’s next up in the Great Strike-ocolypse of 2008.
The problem this time? SAG and AFTRA, two sister unions that have bargained jointly for the last 30 years, have chosen this critical moment to get in a massive pissing contest with each other.
Their infighting has (as far as I can tell) delayed the start of negotiations, and left everyone in town on edge that there’s going to be a second strike.
Already, with the SAG contract expiring June 30th, nothing that would finish past June 15th has been able to get any funding, which is part of why I had such a shit time finding a job after I got the ax.
I hope to hell this settles soon, mostly because no one, and I mean no one, can afford another strike right now. Least of all my broke ass.
