"COVID-19 Resources" with a COVID-19 molecule in the background

Dear Arizona-Utah Local Member,

As President of the Arizona-Utah Local, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know some of the things we are doing as we face the challenges ahead.

Please know that during this difficult time, SAG-AFTRA’s top priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our members. We are aware of the challenges many members face as production has temporarily ceased. SAG-AFTRA is regularly updating its COVID-19 resource page on the website with the latest updates so please continue to check this site.

In addition, it is critical in the coming weeks that we work together and advocate for our fellow members and our local communities. To assist members of the Arizona-Utah Local, our local board has compiled helpful resources available to members living in Arizona and Utah and have listed these below. This will be updated online as needed.

While this evolving situation seems to be moving quickly at times, please know staff are working remotely to ensure the union’s core functions, including residuals processing, continue. Click here for a list of our local support staff.  You can also contact me at azut.president@sagaftra.org

Download the SAG-AFTRA member app to be the first to receive the latest news. Sign up for direct deposit so residuals are securely deposited in your bank account. Watch your emails for the latest updates and possible calls to action. Stay safe by following the advice of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the guidance of local government authorities.

While we are being asked to physically stay apart for the time being, looking out for one another is what will and does unify us.

In Solidarity,

Joe Corcoran
Arizona-Utah Local President
