SAG AFTRA AND PRODUCERS EXTEND THEIR TALKS A THIRD TIME

With a media blackout still in effect, SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) agreed on Wednesday to another 24-hour extension of talks. Although neither side has talked to reporters, there has been much speculation among analysts that the delays have simply been the result of the fact that the previous contracts were written before the merger of SAG and AFTRA and that consolidating the separate contracts into a single master contract may be taking more time than expected. The latest extension expires at midnight tonight.

UPDATE: Negotiations were extended again on Thursday, presenting the prospect of the negotiators working through the 4th of July holiday.
