Actor's Strike Unlikely

I guess SAG had to wait till after their awards show to make changes. No use stirring the pot before the big televised event. And so they waited till the day after to fire their national executive director and chief negotiator, Doug Allen. At the same time, SAG will be joining forces with the other actor's union, AFTRA, to renegotiate their advertising agreements.

"The negotiating committee for the union, which has been working without a contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers since last June, will now shrink to a 10-member task force, according to the Associated Press." I have a better idea, accept the AFTRA agreement with AMPTP and move forward. It's time to move forward, not waste more time or money, when a legitimate deal with actors has been already struck.
