Screen Actors Guild (SAG) president Alan Rosenberg is heading to court in a bid to reinstate the ousted DOUG ALLEN as national executive director of the union. Allen, SAG's chief negotiator in their stalled studio talks, was fired last month (26Jan09) after he was blamed for the lack of progress in the contract discussions with Hollywood heads.
The 120,000 SAG cardholders have been threatening to strike after going without a film and prime-time TV contract since their old labour pact expired in June 2008, after negotiations collapsed and the studios presented what they called their "final" offer.
Talks are scheduled to resume this week (03Feb09) - but SAG president Rosenberg and first Vice President Anne-Marie Johnson are now planning to file a suit demanding Allen's return.
According to industry paper Daily Variety, the duo submitted a legal document to SAG chiefs on Monday (02Feb09) objecting to Allen's dismissal, which was voted for by 53 per cent of the union.
Confirming the receipt of the documents, SAG spokeswoman Pamela Greenwalt says, "Screen Actors Guild today received a document that our legal team is reviewing. We have no further comment."
SAG screen advisor John McGuire is currently serving as negotiator between the union and Hollywood movie studios.
