...The Screen Actors Guild will mail out strike referendum ballots will be mailed out Jan. 2, with the results due three weeks later, the guild said Wednesday morning.
...A positive strike vote requires 75 percent approval from those who vote and gives the union's board authority to call a strike if all efforts at reaching a contract with the studios fail. Ballots will be tabulated at Integrity Voting Systems in Everett, Wash. Results of the vote will be announced Jan. 23. The national board, which meets on Jan. 24, will have final say on whether to stage a walkout.
