The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on Thursday agreed to meet with a federal mediator in its contract dispute with the Screen Actors Guild.
SAG had called for a federal mediator last Sunday.
The AMPTP released a statement Thursday, saying, “We are, of course, willing to meet with a federal mediator in the hopes of achieving our fifth Guild agreement this year. But we are also realistic: It will be very difficult to reach an agreement if SAG continues to insist unreasonably that it deserves a better deal than the ones achieved by the other entertainment Guilds during far better economic times.”
