Who cares about us! “the guild representative explodes.

According to staff, nothing is being done to find a permanent solution. And the new president of SAG France, Patrick Beehler, appointed three weeks ago, is not reassured. “For me, the trustee who is there, was dispatched by the parent company.”Advanced Doulache Boualem Delegate FO. “He wants to file for bankruptcy in September, that’s all.
