SAG Statement in Response to AMPTP Letter of 9-29-08

Los Angeles, (Sept. 30, 2008)  --  Screen Actors Guild released the following statement from SAG National executive director and chief negotiator Doug Allen in response to the AMPTP’s Sept. 29, 2008 statement:

“We are disappointed to to hear that the employers and their AMPTP representatives are refusing to engage in the process necessary to complete a deal. 

We do not believe that their rejection of our reasonable request  is in the best interests of our members or the industry.  Our National Negotiating Committee will be meeting later this week to consider management’s response.”
