EJO Speaks Out


Edward James Olmos signed an ad run by SAG regarding on going contract talks between SAG and the AMPTP. Variety reports that SAG feels that the present offer is inferior to what the majors have offered to AFTRA.

For its part, SAG placed an ad in today's edition of Daily Variety with the names of about 70 supporters of the negotiators. Signers include Josh Brolin, Louis Gossett Jr., Ed Harris, Holly Hunter, Amy Madigan, Viggo Mortensen, Jack Nicholson, Nick Nolte, Edward James Olmos, Sandra Oh, Rob Schneider, Harry Dean Stanton, Ben Stiller, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Rainn Wilson.


Here's the text of the ad:
Dear SAG members,

Support your negotiating team! We continue to bargain with the AMPTP daily. Our goal is to reach a fair contract for television programs and motion pictures and improve your wages and working conditions.

You can show your support by signing on to the solidarity statement below by emailing Contract2008@sag.org with your name and SAG membership number (NOT your social security number!).

Once we receive your email, we’ll add your name to the growing list of Screen Actor Guild members who have pledged to stand together in support of these critical negotiations.

Please visit sag.org for daily updates.
WE SUPPORT SCREEN ACTORS GUILD


Screen Actors Guild continues to bargain for a fair contract. And we are not finished. We believe that there are issues that are at the heart of every actor’s career that remain unresolved by AFTRA.

• Significant increases: Minimums, schedule and money breaks, pension and health contributions, increases for background actors, stunt performers, mileage reimbursements and major role premiums.
• Residuals for all new media.
• NO non-union new media productions.
• Protections from Product Integration abuses.
• Reasonable Residual increase payments for DVDs.
• Preserve Force Majeure protections

We believe AFTRA should go back to the bargaining table, with SAG, and fight for a better contract.

Our Screen Actors Guild negotiating team is working 24/7 to get a fair contract for 120,000 SAG members.

WE SUPPORT OUR SAG NEGOTIATORS

In issue 17 of SciFiNow coming out in July, Eddie Olmos talks about the end of the series, and what's in store for everyone:

Edward James Olmos has said that audiences will not be prepared for the upcoming finale of Battlestar Galactica, in a panel at London’s MCM Expo and an exclusive interview with SciFiNow.

“It’s not a happy ending, we end up with almost nothing,” the 61-year-old actor told journalists from the magazine over the weekend, while jokingly recommending that people don’t watch it. Previously in the day, Olmos had described how highly he rated the show, reaffirming his previous statement that it was the best television that he had been involved with. “Twenty years from now, people will see this as excellent post-9/11 television. It’ll be marketed in a way that demonstrates sociological change for the time.”

Olmos also revealed that the cast now know who the final Cylon is as they’ve shot the last episode, but he remained tight-lipped over the final fifth’s identity. However, Aaron Douglas did say that all of the guesses and popular theories he’d seen on internet forums and blogs “don’t even come close”.

The SAG/AFTRA split was unfortunate, but at the same time all the unions (WGA, SAG, AFTRA et al) did not learn from the strikes of the 40s, nor did they learn from the SEIU strikes of 2000.

It's only with cross-union solidarity that you can win these battles. Otherwise everyone accepts their settlement and sells out the next one up for renewal.

At this point no one is winning and eveyrone is losing. This is the only industry we now export to the world and we're cutting it off at the knees. VERY STUPID!

The studios very intentionally seek to reach settlements with each union independently if possible - and at very distinct time-intervals specifically for the purpose of thwarting union solidarity. The executives never deny themselves any perks and if it means hiding their hookers, drugs and $50,000 spent on a party in the black hole of a movie budget
you can bet they do it. All unions working in the entertainment industry should seek to target their future contract negotiations for the same time-period as other unions. United they will all get a better deal and the studios always lie about the bottom line. They have the money to properly pay the talent.

I no doubt said this countless times during the WGA strike, but I continue to be dumbfounded that the studios get together in a gang to negotiate but the unions do not.

Every time, the studios start out unified and the unions start out fractured.

Suddenly, all I can hear is "all this has happened before--" "but it doesn't have to happen again".

Logan Gawain said...

I agree with all three of you.

I just hope if this does g to a strike, WGA supports SAG the same way SAG supported them during the strike.

Every little bit of solidarity helps.
