LOS ANGELES (March 4, 2014) — SAG-AFTRA has finalized its Personal Manager Code of Ethics and Conduct, a voluntary agreement that is designed to promote honest and ethical relationships between the union’s members and the managers they choose to represent them.

Stakeholder Comments Requested by December 9
This statement from the SAG-AFTRA National Election Committee is to inform you of various obligations imposed on you by federal law in connection with the upcoming SAG-AFTRA internal union elections. The National Elections Committee encourages you to carefully read this statement so you do not inadvertently violate SAG-AFTRA Election Guidelines or federal law.
To all members represented by an ATA/NATR agency that have chosen to sign a General Services Agreement (or “GSA”) with their agent:
SAG-AFTRA National Agency staff will hold a bi-coastal educational seminar on general service agreements, or GSAs (i.e. the contracts that some agents have been using to represent our members instead of the standard Legacy SAG agency contracts). These GSA contracts are signed outside of SAG-AFTRA’s protection, and it is imperative that members have a working knowledge of what these contracts say before signing them — your professional future and your income may depend on it.
To all SAG-AFTRA members currently registered for the GSA agency seminar in LA and NY on Dec. 5, 2012 at 12 p.m. (3 p.m. EST), please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been forced to postpone this event to a later date. In the interim, if you have any questions regarding your agency contracts, please do not hesitate to contact either the SAG-AFTRA office in LA or NY for an individual review of your agency agreement.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
