SAG-AFTRA is pleased to announce the beginning of the Wages & Working Conditions (W&W) process in preparation for negotiation of the Commercials Contracts that expires March 31, 2013. It is only through the involvement of members that proposals for this vital negotiation are developed.
There are four ways to make your voice heard:
Commercials Contracts Caucuses - Join your fellow members to discuss what really matters! Open to all paid-up SAG-AFTRA members, the caucuses are free-form sessions where you can express any issue you feel should be addressed in the upcoming negotiations. Input from the caucuses directly effects the proposals formed by the Wages & Working Conditions Committees.
Wages & Working Conditions Committee Meetings - These formal meetings use the information and ideas gathered from the caucuses to create proposals for the 2013 contract negotiations.
- (Note: Upcoming dates for Caucuses and W&W meetings in Hollywood and New York will be emailed soon. Local members should contact your Local staff and visit your SAG-AFTRA Local pages on SAGAFTRA.org for dates and times.)
Email Suggestions - Can’t make it to a caucus or committee meeting? You can still play an active part by emailing your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposal recommendations will be reviewed by the Wages & Working Conditions Committee.
On-Site Suggestion Box - Boxes will be placed in the SAG-AFTRA 7th floor reception desk at 5757 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles, the SAG-AFTRA 12th floor reception area at 360 Madison Ave. in New York and the SAG-AFTRA 7th floor reception area at 260 Madison Ave. in New York. Feel free to drop-in your contract-related thoughts and concerns. Please note that the last day for suggestions is Friday October 19, 2012.
