AFTRA to start talks with AMPTP 4/28


The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) announced it will start contract talks Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) on 4/28, after announcing last weekend it will work a deal separate from the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). The two unions had negotiated together with producers for decades, but that deal has been severed. AFTRA said it decided to push back its negotiations to give SAG time to work out a separate deal with studios–scheduled to begin 4/15.
