The proposed two-year contract is expected to be voted on by the Screen Actors Guild's 71-member national board on Sunday. Actors have been working without a contract for nine months - with much of that time spent bickering among themselves. From the LAT:
The contract contains some minor improvements over previous offers but is largely similar to the one studios presented to SAG nine months ago. That is certain to raise questions about what the union accomplished by holding out so long to secure a deal after other talent unions secured their own contracts with the studios. The agreement was hashed out after weeks of back-channel talks involving between SAG interim executive director David White and top media executives, principally Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger and Warner Bros. chairman Barry Meyer.
