To Agents, Managers, Casting Agents, and Producers Regarding Restrictions on Union Campaign Contributions

This statement from the SAG-AFTRA National Election Committee is to inform you of various obligations imposed on you by federal law in connection with the upcoming SAG-AFTRA internal union elections. The National Elections Committee encourages you to carefully read this statement so you do not inadvertently violate SAG-AFTRA Election Guidelines or federal law.
