Actors' union board votes not to take Reagan's card

Directors of the Screen Actors Guild turned back efforts to evoke Ronald Reagan's honorary union card because of his mass firings of air traffic controllers. The New York board of directors, in a 21-1 vote, also refused to bring the President up on charges for "conduct unbecoming a member."

Acknowledging the President's "right to viewpoint," the board concurred with a similar ruling by the Hollywood SAG board.Both boards however, voted to support the position of the AFL-CIO regarding the dispute with the air traffic controllers' union.
