Screen Actors Guild members are advised not to render voice-over services for Grabaciones y Doblajes or Grabaciones y Doblajes Internacionales on "LOS SIMPSONS" in Mexico.
Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Asociación Nacional de Actores (ANDA), the Mexican performers union, have enjoyed years of friendship, solidarity, joint action and mutual aid since 1999.
Recently, the Spanish-language voice performers of "Los Simpsons" and members of ANDA went on strike after contract negotiations broke down between ANDA and Grabaciones y Doblajes, the Mexico City-based dubbing studio where the show is re-recorded. The company is claiming the existing union contract is no longer valid and is hiring non-union replacements.
SAG members are urged to show solidarity and not accept contracts of employment in substitution for the members of ANDA.
