Former Sag President Rosenberg Denounces Merger Agreement

Resuming the firebrand role he played as president of the Screen Actors Guild during its 2008-09 strike, Alan Rosenberg has accused the heads of SAG and AFTRA of "lying about their intentions" as they push for a merger. "Their goal is to make sure no one in this town will strike," he told the Hollywood Reporter . He accused the leaders of the two unions of being "too compliant" to the studios. Rosenberg was particularly critical of plans to merge the pension and welfare plans of the two unions, charging that the tentative deal reached between SAG and AFTRA negotiators fails to require an impact study as required under SAG's constitution.
