On Friday, Nov. 30, the WGA will pay tribute to the veteran writers, actors and directors of yesteryear and honor those who helped form and shape the unions we are fighting to protect.
Sony Studios in Culver City
10 a.m -Noon
Jasmine Gate (10202 W. Washington Blvd.)
Street parking is available.
Staff Contact: Seneca Scott.
When you arrive at the location, please look for the designated Screen Actors Guild staff member.
There are no strike locations in New York. Schedule will resume on Dec. 3.
Please stay at studio locations, and do not join picketers at on-location sites. Screen Actors Guild is not condoning or participating in disruption and/or attempts to shut down location shoots.
It is critical that SAG picket signs not be displayed at any locations other than the appropriate sites at the studios and networks.
If you are contracted to work on a television series or motion picture that continues to produce while the WGA is on strike, you are obligated by your personal service agreement and the “No Strike” clause in our collective bargaining agreements to go to work. You can continue to audition for work and accept new work if you choose to do so.
Screen Actors Guild members should not perform the duties covered by WGA contracts. Simply stated, you should not write anything normally written by striking WGA writers.
Finally, and most importantly, we must support our fellow SAG members on every set even if they have to cross a picket line to get to work. They are simply following the advice of their union and honoring their contract. It is not reasonable to expect SAG cast members to risk the potentially enormous personal liability that may flow from refusing to work in the absence of a SAG strike. Please note, the WGA contract includes a similar “No Strike” clause and writers would be bound to the same rules as you are if another union were striking.
