Negotiators trying to head off a television actors’ strike resumed work Monday following a 22-hour weekend session. “They worked very, very hard,” said Dick Moore, spokesman for the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists. “There is obviously a desire on everyone’s part to get this thing behind us.” The talks at CBS headquarters in New York began at 9 a.m. Saturday and continued through Sunday morning, Moore said. “There was some progress, but the negotiations are not concluded.” An agreement between AFTRA and the television networks prevents him from providing progress reports on specific issues. Some 37 different contracts are being hammered out. AFTRA contracts expired Nov. 15, but work is continuing under a day-to-day agreement.
