The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) begins contract negotiations with studio leaders Tuesday.This weekend, the union's board of directors referred a controversial proposal to committee.

The petition calls for restricting the voting in upcoming contract talks to actors who work at least one day a year.

Many board members argued that would exclude most guild members because the majority of the union's 120,000 members do not work regularly.

Supporters say non-working members would be more likely to favor a strike.
