ATTENTION SAG-AFTRA NEW ENGLAND LOCAL MEMBERS

TV/Theatrical Contracts Informational Webinar Meeting

7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014

On July 12, 2014, your SAG-AFTRA National Board overwhelmingly approved and recommended a YES vote for the tentative agreement reached with the AMPTP. Eligible SAG-AFTRA members will now vote on the proposed successor agreements covering motion pictures, scripted primetime dramatic television and new media production. The tentative deal unifies SAG and AFTRA television contracts under a new 2014 SAG-AFTRA Television Agreement. In addition, the first industry-wide agreement for performers in basic cable production is now incorporated into the new Television Agreement.

Members who are eligible to vote were mailed a postcard on July 23, 2014 with ballot instructions explaining how to vote electronically or how to request a paper ballot. To view a preview of the referendum booklet online, click here.

You are invited to an informational webinar meeting on the proposed TV/Theatrical Contracts and the strong pay increases and solid workplace protections for the members who work under it. This webinar will provide members the opportunity to hear a presentation followed by a group discussion. 

When: 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014
