It is only through the involvement of members that proposals for this vital negotiation are developed.
There are three ways to make your voice heard:
- Commercials W&W 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 Commercials Wages & Working Conditions Committee.
- Wages & Working Conditions Committee Meetings - These formal meetings use the information and ideas gathered from the caucuses to create proposals for the 2019 contract negotiations. Meetings will begin nationwide beginning in October of 2018. Check your emails and the Los Angeles Local web page at safaftra.org for the specific 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.
