ATA will chat with SAG

Orgs to restart talks that broke off 9 months ago

The Assn. of Talent Agents has conditionally agreed to participate in an open forum with the Screen Actors Guild over the contentious issue of SAG’s regulations on agencies.

The agreement came over two months after SAG first proposed the event as a way to possibly resolve the stalled negotiations between the orgs.

SAG spokesman Greg Krizman said Wednesday that SAG had received the letter and would respond as soon as possible but added that no date had yet been set.

SAG and ATA broke off negotiations over their operating agreement nine months ago and have not yet scheduled new talks.

The operating agreement has entered a 15 month termination period that will expire in Jan.
