Actors Unions: Another Try At Merger?

Are the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) talking merger again? Last year a proposal to merge the two actors unions failed in a vote. “Some 75% of AFTRA members voted for the AIMA proposal. But SAG needed a supermajority — 60% of voting guild members — to approve the merger, and received only 58%.”
