Will SAG-AFTRA Board Member Matthew Modine vote against guild deal with studios?

SAG-AFTRA Board Member Matthew Modine is once again taking a stand against the guild’s deal with the studios. In a recent statement, Modine expressed his concerns about the agreement, stating that “consent is surrender” and that he will be voting against the deal.

Modine’s stance is not new. He has been vocal about his opposition to the previous agreement, citing issues with terms related to residuals, horse wranglers, and background actors. Despite the board’s overwhelming support for the deal, with only a few members voting against it, Modine has remained firm in his position.

The full agreement between SAG-AFTRA and the studios is set to be released on Friday, and it will be interesting to see how it addresses the issues that Modine and others have raised. With the release of the full agreement, members will have the opportunity to review and discuss the terms before casting their votes.

It’s clear that Modine is a passionate advocate for the rights of actors and performers, and his determination to stand up for what he believes in is commendable. While some may disagree with his position, it is important to have diverse voices in leadership positions to ensure that all perspectives are considered.

As the release of the full agreement approaches, it will be crucial for SAG-AFTRA members to carefully review the terms and weigh in on the decision. With so much at stake, it’s essential that all voices are heard before a final vote is cast. Only time will tell how this will play out, but one thing’s for sure: Matthew Modine isn’t backing down.
