Because Grey Global Group failed to cooperate with our investigation of its possible production of non-union commercials through a front company, SAG-AFTRA filed charges today with the National Labor Relations Board. As a SAG-AFTRA member, we wanted you to know as soon as we took action. The NLRB will review these charges and determine if Grey Global is guilty as charged.

SAG-AFTRA is pleased to announce impending residuals payments related to the Relativity bankruptcy. All residuals that came due during the bankruptcy, from July 31, 2015 through April 14, 2016, will be paid in full. We expect these payments to be completed in the summer of 2016. Payments on pre-bankruptcy residuals claims are more complex but we achieved substantial recoveries and payments are forthcoming over the next two to six months. All residuals coming due after mid-April 2016 will be paid by the reorganized Relativity in normal course.
