We’re all aware that there are members who have solid earnings but are still falling short of qualifying for union health coverage because those earnings are being split between SAG and AFTRA contracts. Although there have always been participants that have had employer contributions made to both plans, the split in those contributions has been aggravated in recent years by shifts in the industry that have resulted in increasing numbers of participants who have sufficient joint earnings, but are not qualifying for either plan.
