SAG Strike Authorization Vote Shifts Into Gear

SAG sent a long email to its members yesterday urging its members to vote yes on strike authorization ballots to be sent out in December. The email was largely in the form of a Q&A explaining the union leadership’s argument that a strike authorization is a necessary negotiating tool. An exact date for mailing out the ballots wasn’t specified, but as I’ve previously blogged, I expect them to go out soon, so that the approximately 4 week process will conclude, and results will be in hand, before the Golden Globes (January 11).
