LOS ANGELES, December 14, 2008 — Screen Actors Guild today released the following statement in response to the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producer's (AMPTPs) ad scheduled for tomorrow.

“There they go again.  The  AMPTP’s ad is great fiction, with convoluted bullet points and confused messages -- and, it’s completely wrong.

Here’s the truth:

LOS ANGELES, DECEMBER 10, 2008 -- Screen Actors Guild today announced that strike authorization ballots will be mailed to paid-up SAG members on Friday January 2, 2009, and will be tabulated on Friday, January 23. A yes vote by 75% of members voting is required to pass the measure, which would authorize SAG's national board of directors to call a strike, if and when the board determines it is necessary.

Dear Screen Actors Guild Member,

We know many of you plan to attend the informational Hollywood Division Town Hall Meeting at Harmony Gold Theater on December 8, 2008 at 7 p.m. While we tried to secure a larger  venue, seasonal parties, award consideration screenings, and our policy to use only union facilities, limited our options.

We will admit the first 450 members who have paid up SAG membership cards to the town hall. We are currently looking for an appropriate venue so that we can hold another town hall for Hollywood Division members very soon.
