Hollywood's two main actors unions, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Jan 16 took a historic step toward combining their two unions.

The Group for One Union, which is made up of leaders of SAG and AFTRA, hammered out an agreement to merge the unions after nine days of intensive talks -- held out of the public view at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel.
