(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? The Screen Actors Guild announced on Tuesday (April 1) that it would begin contract talks with the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers at 10 a.m. on April 15 at the AMPTP headquarters in Encino, CA. ”Now that we have concluded our wages and working conditions process and the SAG National Board has approved our proposal package, we look forward to productive negotiations,” SAG national executive director and chief negotiator Doug Allen said on Tuesday night. The SAG announcement comes three days after the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists said it would not negotiate its contract jointly with SAG, as the two groups have done for almost three decades. AFTRA is expected to announce its negotiations start date some time this week. The actors’ unions’ current contracts expire on June 30. (Hollywood Reporter)
