Re:  Status of Union Franchise for Associated Booking Corporation

Please note that the Associated Booking Corporation is no longer franchised with SAG-AFTRA as of March 6, 2014.  

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.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact the National SAG-AFTRA Professional Representatives Departments at either (323) 549-6745 or (212) 863-4305, if you have any outstanding questions.  Thank you.
