With that though, the SAG is seemingly staying away from all strike talks.

The SAG president Alan Rosenberg released a statement on Sunday, asking stating that “We have taken no steps to initiate a strike-authorization vote by members of Screen Actors Guild.”

He went on to state that any talk about a strike or anything like that would simply be a “distraction.”

“The Screen Actors Guild national negotiating committee is coming to the bargaining table every day in good faith to negotiate a fair contract for actors.”

It is likely that the talks between the studios and the SAG will not end today, but could continue into next week.

They are expected to last until the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) voted on whether or not they will agree to a new contract.
