Solidarity? I Think Not. The Death of SAG
STATEMENT REGARDING NATIONAL BOARD ACTIONS OF JANUARY 26, 2009
The Screen Actors Guild National Board of Directors by written assent today terminated the employment of Doug Allen and appointed former Guild general counsel David White to replace him as interim national executive director. The board further appointed longtime Guild senior advisor John T. McGuire as chief negotiator.
The board also disbanded the TV/Theatrical Negotiating Committee and directed that it be replaced with a Taskforce directed to complete these negotiations on behalf of the board of directors.
All actions are effective immediately.
These idiots have truly lost their mind. TRULY gone coo coo bananas. The founding members of SAG must be rolling in their graves. Say good bye to residuals...
How can we stand up right if we have no backbone?
Dammit, why didn't I go to medical school instead.
