Re: Surrender of Franchise for Hustle Enterprise Talent Agency – Los Angeles
Please note that SAG-AFTRA has accepted the surrender of Hustle Enterprise Talent Agency’s franchise effective November 8, 2012 for Legacy SAG’s Jurisdiction and Legacy AFTRA’s Jurisdiction.
The effect of the surrender is as follows:
No member of SAG-AFTRA may hereafter engage, use or deal through this agency.
All contracts in force between this agency and the members of SAG-AFTRA are ipso facto and without further notice terminated except that the agency may retain and collect any commissions earned under said contracts prior to the surrender of franchise.
Members shall not be under any obligation to pay commissions to the agent on any moneys earned by members after the termination of the agency contracts, even though such moneys are earned by members on employment contracts in existence at the date of termination of the agency contracts.
You have the right to revoke any payment authorizations which you have signed in favor of Dona Maria Agency for legacy AFTRA-covered work. You may do this by advising each and every employer, the Residual Department of SAG-AFTRA, and payroll services of the revocation in writing. Please be reminded that, in the event that you choose to revoke your payment authorization to Dona Maria Agency you are not thereby relieved of the responsibility to remit the appropriate commissions due to Dona Maria Agency.
Please do not hesitate to contact Zino Macaluso, National Director/Sr. Counsel, Agency Relations at (323) 549-6729 with any outstanding questions.
