An upstart group of actors has won a majority of Hollywood seats up for re-election on the national board of the Screen Actors Guild.

The Unite for Strength group, led by actor Ned Vaughn, won six of 11 Hollywood seats up for grabs, breaking the incumbent Membership First majority on the 71-member board.

Membership First, which had controlled 39 of 71 seats, won just five of the 11 Hollywood seats it once commanded.

The change could impact stalled talks between the guild and major Hollywood studios over a contract on film and prime-time TV show production that expired June 30.
