(January 8, 2007)---Screen Actors Guild extends its full support to ACTRA and stands in solidarity with ACTRA’s membership during their strike. The Guild will vigorously resist any efforts by struck employers to relocate productions to the USA and will, to the fullest extent permitted by law, prohibit the acceptance of struck work by Guild members.
Members should contact the Guild prior to accepting any new engagement in Canada or on any production that might be relocating to the USA, or any other location, because of the ACTRA strike. Members who are currently engaged on a production in Canada should also contact the Guild to determine whether continuing with that employment would violate Guild rules. Inquiries should be directed to Elizabeth Moseley in the Guild's Theatrical Contracts Department at (323) 549-6821 or to Deborah Berg in the Television Contracts Department at (323) 549-6833.
