Dear Member,

This is to alert you regarding the union’s efforts to organize performers working in commercials for Droga5, a non-union digital advertising agency. Droga5 is an award-winning digital agency that executes high-profile projects for major advertisers, work that would typically otherwise be done through signatory agencies under the SAG-AFTRA Commercials Contract. We are concerned that Droga5 has done at least some of this work by using union performers on a non-union basis and will be monitoring carefully against that possibility.

Dear Member,

We are pleased to report that the Interactive Media Agreement Strike Authorization Referendum was a resounding success with 96.52% of members voting in favor of the referendum. Voting on the referendum closed yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 6, and ballots were tabulated by Integrity Voting Systems.

It is important to note that the referendum result does not mean that members are on strike, rather, it gives the National Board the authority to declare a strike.  A 75% “yes" vote was required to give the National Board that authority.
