Finally, SAG Signs

11 Months after the deal SAG had been working on expired, the membership ratified (overwhelmingly) the latest contract, which is a lot like the contract they saw offered 11 months ago. 80 million dollars in lost revenue later, a slumping economy and a cash strapped industry hampered by an ongoing labor dispute is the new world in which SAG members get to enjoy their 3% raise. You really have to either laugh or cry at the shear stupidity with which SAG handled this negotiation /catastrophe. In Further SAG news, Alan Rosenberg announced he was going to run for a third term as president. Do you hear that? Of course you don't, because it's the silence of no one rejoicing. The only president more dis-liked by their constituents was Bush.
