About to sign a contract with your agent? Want to be fully informed about your rights and obligations before you sign on the dotted line? Well, SAG-AFTRA’s Professional Representatives Department 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 and/or legacy AFTRA agency agreements). These GSA contracts are signed outside of SAG-AFTRA’s protections, and it is imperative that members have a working knowledge of what these contracts say before signing them—your professional future, your income and your freedom of mobility from one agency to another may depend on it.
Staff will also take this opportunity to address how these contracts may apply, and discuss what your options are. This educational seminar will be especially helpful to any member having trouble making sense of the complicated legal language contained in the GSAs that their agents have provided them. Please also note that the use and application of the standard GSA has changed with many agents—it’s important you know how!
