Joint Statement from AMPTP and AFTRA

As scheduled, today the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) began formal negotiations regarding a new three-year Exhibit A of the Network Code agreement. At the start of talks, both parties expressed their desire to engage in open, productive discussions that will hopefully lead to a resolution that makes sense for both AFTRA and the industry. Both parties believe that these negotiations will be most productive if we refrain from commenting to the media until an agreement is reached.

It sounds like we're not going to hear anything for awhile. Lets hope, and pray and cross our fingers, that when we do hear something again that it's good news.
