AFTRA struck its own deal with the studios last month, and assuming its 70,000 members ratify their TV contract, a handful of shows produced under that labor deal, including "Til Death" and "Rules of Engagement," could continue during a SAG strike.

The AFTRA deal is set for a ratification vote that comes to a close on July 8. Approval by AFTRA would undercut SAG's bargaining position as many AFTRA members also belong to SAG.
If "Til Death" and "Rules of Engagement" can continue production if a SAG strike happens because they are under AFTRA. Why wouldn't soaps be able too? Those actors on those shows would also be SAG/AFTRA members as well. I'm just confused about that.
