SAG Postpones Vote on Strike…Officially

sag2222.jpgThe LA Times is reporting that the Screen Actors Guild has decided not to vote on whether or not to strike after the new year:

But in an e-mail to the union’s board members Monday night, SAG Executive Director Doug Allen said he and SAG President Alan Rosenberg agreed to push back the strike referendum until after the board convenes a special meeting Jan. 12 to “address the unfortunate division and restore consensus.”

Yeah, we were under the impression, because of stories in the news and statements made by SAG leadership, that the vote wasn’t going to happen until after the Golden Globes that airs January 11th.

Hmf. Actors! Always have to be at the center of attention.
