The National Board of Directors of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists...today [January 28th] voted overwhelmingly to approve and recommend to the AFTRA membership a plan to merge with Screen Actors Guild.
The vote was 94%-6% in favor.
The AFTRA National Board's resolution will provide for the referendum material to be mailed to AFTRA members on or about Feb. 27, 2012, with a ballot return and tabulation deadline of March 30, 2012.
