A Message from Secretary Treasurer Amy Aquino and Chief Financial Officer Arianna Ozzanto Regarding Paperless Dues Billing
We are writing you regarding Screen Actors Guild’s new paperless dues billing initiative and asking you to give it a try. It’s an absolutely free new service that simply makes good financial sense.
The Screen Actors Guild has been receiving inquiries from members with respect to the signatory status of a motion picture entitled UnPhaZed. Please be advised that no one had become signatory to a Guild collective bargaining agreement with respect to this motion picture as of January 4, 2011. Please remember your membership obligation under Rule 1 of the Guild By-Laws to refrain from working for any producer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the Guild which is in full force and effect.
Please take this opportunity to communicate with Motion Picture & Television Fund through your survey response and help MPTF develop a future that addresses your needs and those of your family, friends and industry co-workers.
The survey is being administered by an independent research company and all responses will be kept confidential and anonymous. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your participation is critical.

Dear Fellow SAG Member:
Right now, more than 140,000 American troops are deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq, spending the holidays far away from home. Connecting with their loved ones by phone will make all the difference at this special time, and I'm asking you to join me in helping them do just that.
On November 3, 2010, MGM filed a voluntary bankruptcy petition with the United States Bankruptcy Court. Due to technical issues relating to the bankruptcy process, MGM bank accounts were briefly frozen for a period spanning November 3 and November 4, 2010. During this period, MGM checks were not honored upon deposit and therefore may have bounced. The company intends to honor all past and future obligations arising under Guild collective bargaining agreements, and is already taking steps to do so, even while in bankruptcy.
