I had forgotten all about this but was searching through some of my files tonight and ran across this:

March 29, 1967-May 11, 1967: First time there were no televised episodes of the daytime soaps due to a strike by the American Federation of TV and Radio Artists.

Wow! Fascinating. If there were an AFTRA strike today, it'd definitely kill soaps.

Or the SAG would strike. Soap Actors have membership in both. I have been reading that the big reason the SAG actors are so supportive and our picketing with the writers is because their contract is up next summer. Some industry insiders say they wouldn't be suprised if they end up on strike to.
