Are You Ready to Compete as a Professional?

SAG-AFTRA membership is a significant rite of passage for every working professional in the media and entertainment industry. 

When you are offered your first principal union job, we urge you to consider joining SAG-AFTRA, but understand it is a commitment. For broadcasters, membership in SAG-AFTRA is governed by the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement under which you are employed. Contact the National Broadcast Department or your nearest Local when you are offered a job in a SAG-AFTRA shop for more information and initiation fees. Once you are a member, you must abide by the rules of membership, starting with Global Rule One. And, whether you are a SAG-AFTRA member or not--never accept work during a union strike!
