SAG Members Vote Down Video-Game Deal
The Screen Actors Guild’s membership has rejected a proposed extension of the guild’s video-game contract. Members meeting in caucuses Oct. 26 and 27 in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco voted the proposal down 42-73.

SAG and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists announced Oct. 2 that they had worked jointly to negotiate an extension with video game producers. AFTRA’s national board of directors announced Monday that it had approved the deal and would be sending it to members for ratification. In a statement on the SAG Web site, the guild said, "The Screen Actors Guild will be pursuing further negotiations with the Industry to address the concerns raised by members regarding the tentative agreement."
