SAG has a petition that you can sign if you're a member. Look at the list of people who already have.
Dear SAG members,
Support your negotiating team! We continue to bargain with the AMPTP daily. Our goal is to reach a fair contract for television programs and motion pictures and improve your wages and working conditions.
You can show your support by signing on to the solidarity statement below by emailing Contract2008@sag.org with your name and SAG membership number (NOT your social security number!).
Once we receive your email, we’ll add your name to the growing list of Screen Actor Guild members who have pledged to stand together in support of these critical negotiations.
Please visit sag.org for daily updates.
WE SUPPORT SCREEN ACTORS GUILD
Screen Actors Guild continues to bargain for a fair contract. And we are not finished. We believe that there are issues that are at the heart of every actor’s career that remain unresolved by AFTRA.
• Significant increases: Minimums, schedule and money breaks, pension and health contributions, increases for background actors, stunt performers, mileage reimbursements and major role premiums.
• Residuals for all new media.
• NO non-union new media productions.
• Protections from Product Integration abuses.
• Reasonable Residual increase payments for DVDs.
• Preserve Force Majeure protections
We believe AFTRA should go back to the bargaining table, with SAG, and fight for a better contract.
Our Screen Actors Guild negotiating team is working 24/7 to get a fair contract for 120,000 SAG members.

On a shallower note, I don't know if the entertainment industry on a whole could weather another strike so soon after the last one, and I'm sure episodic television couldn't. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE EVEN MORE TV TIME. I want my Fall TV!!
