SAG and AFTRA renew partnership

Hollywood’s two largest actors’ unions, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television &Radio Artists, confirmed to members on Sunday that they have renewed their bargaining partnership, Variety reports. Last year, the unions ended a 27-year-old joint-bargaining relationship after years of bitter dispute between the two groups. AFTRA members inked a new contract with the major studios in July, while SAG has is still trying to hammer out its new deal. Yesterday’s announcement, however, marks a return to solidarity between actors in their negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
