Member to Non-Member Organizing Revolution: 1-2 p.m.
Are you tired of seeing jobs go non union or seeing non-union actors work on SAG jobs? Be part of the solution! SAG is organizing a team of committed members to recruit eligible non-members to join. Remember: If producers can find non-union performers, they have no reason to sign with SAG and pay our wages and pension and health contributions. More members are the solution to more SAG jobs. We need your help! Show up for this meeting and join our recruitment team so we can put our plan into action now
