AFTRA-SAG’s merger appears on schedule. The boards of both unions had asked Group for One Union (G1), the committee in charge of merger negotiations, to present them with a framework for a SAG-AFTRA union in January 2012. In preparation for that, G1 has scheduled the fourth of 4 planned face-to-face meetings for Jan. 7. At the marathon session, which will last through Jan. 15, the 6 working groups will give updates on the progress they have made. G1 laid the groundwork for those discussions in a two-day meeting yesterday and today. The next SAG and AFTRA board meetings are slated for the last weekend of January, the week of the SAG Awards.
