The SAG-AFTRA Seattle and Portland Locals are pleased to announce the implementation of a waiver to the 2015 SAG-AFTRA National Corporate/Educational and Non-Broadcast Agreement. The waiver or Special Performance Contract (SPC), which goes into effect immediately for a three-year period, is designed to capture more union work in the Pacific Northwest Region by reducing restrictions on non-signatory producers and provide more generous terms of employment.
