A Message from Our SAG-AFTRA Nevada Local President

Barbara Grant

The SAG-AFTRA convention was quite an experience! It’s been years since I’ve been to one, but the spirit and excitement at this one was awesome. The two main speeches were given by guests, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, who has been in government upholding civil rights and fighting discrimination on many levels, including in the U.S. Department of Justice. Both were very inspiring, putting hope in everyone’s heart.

The structure of our union has changed to give us better representation by having a vice president from small, medium and large-sized locals. For our small local, we are represented by David Hartley-Margolin (from my personal experience with him, I must say we are well represented). During the convention, there was time to speak to all members of the leadership team.

Also, for some of you who are behind on dues, please don’t hesitate to call Membership Services at (323) 549-6778. Dues must be paid by Dec. 2 to be eligible for SAG Awards voting and For Your Consideration materials.

Please remember, we are one union, SAG-AFTRA, the former ones no longer exist.

Finally, I encourage all SAG-AFTRA members to participate in Nevada SAG-AFTRA Conservatory workshops. For more information email nevada@sagaftra.org.
