Harvey Weinstein’s future with the Producers Guild of America is on hold until Monday.

“To ensure confidentiality of its proceedings, the Producers Guild of America has moved its special meeting of the National Board of Directors to Monday morning,” the PGA said Friday night in a statement.

The PGA’s national board of directors held an urgent session Saturday morning to respond to rape and sexual assault accusations made against the disgraced mogul to determine if his membership should be stripped, suspended or left in check. Suspension is on the table but termination is likely, an insider tells TheWrap.

Academy bylaws allow the board to expel or suspend members “for cause” with a two-thirds vote.

A petition calling for Weinstein’s ouster had drawn more than 135,000 signatures as of Saturday morning, while the president of CBS Films, Terry Press, threatened to resign from AMPAS if it didn’t expel Weinstein.
