Tempers Flare at SAG-AFTRA Contract Meeting in New York

Deadline: As Deadline reported yesterday, tempers flared in Burbank on Sunday when presidential candidate Esai Morales tried to speak out against the contract and a security guard attempted to wrestle the microphone away from him. Video of that meeting shows Morales accusing the guild’s leaders of “electioneering” at a meeting to discuss the new contract.

The union, meanwhile, is warning talent agents, managers, casting directors and employers that they can’t contribute in any way to the campaigns of any candidate for union office.
