SAG reject last, best and final offer

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) board of directors have rejected the "last, best and final offer" by Hollywood producers for a new contract.

The contract was rejected by 73% of SAG's board members.

SAG called the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers' demand for the contract to run for three years instead of two, "regressive and damaging."

Producers insist the three-year contract would start when it is ratified, instead of when the last one expired, which would mean SAG would not be able to join with the writers' and directors' guilds to increase their bargaining power when their contracts expire in 2011.
