Negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild and the producers have been private -- up until Thursday.
The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers has published its June 30, 2008, final offer to the Screen Actors Guild.
In a statement released with the offer, the AMPTP "encourages all concerned members of the Hollywood community to study the details of the final offer and evaluate whether the economic and new media gains in the final offer -- which is consistent with the six other major labor agreements made during 2008 -- justifies a debilitating strike in the middle of a historic national economic crisis."
The AMPTP power play may squelch the necessary numbers SAG needs to get the strike vote, said Hollywood reporter Alex Ben Block. The union would need a 75 percent vote for a strike.
