SAG Members: Why Wisconsin Matters to You

Dear Screen Actors Guild Member,

You may have seen or heard news reports about the large rallies in support of union workers taking place in Madison, Wisconsin over the last week.  You may have asked yourself why tens of thousands of working people are protesting, or why you should care.

Screen Actors Guild Supports Workers Rights in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin this week, workers, students, community allies and people of faith have joined together to stage massive protests against Governor Walker's budget proposal which would gut collective bargaining rights for 200,000 public workers. Tens of thousands of people are putting their everyday lives on hold to stand in solidarity.

Workers across the country — from Wisconsin to Indiana, Ohio, and beyond — are fighting back. In this still-struggling economy, our country needs one thing: more good jobs.

February 6, 2011: The Ronald Reagan Centennial

Before he became the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Reagan was president of Screen Actors Guild – during two significant periods.

Reagan, who began his career as a star of radio, film and television, first served the Guild as president from March 1947 through November 1952 (after serving previously as 3rd vice president and on the board). During this period, storied for its political and labor strife, his leadership paved the way for SAG’s first contract in television, among other accomplishments.
