Miami Community Leaders and Telemundo Talent Celebrate the SAG-AFTRA Election Victory

On March 9, SAG-AFTRA joined community leaders and Telemundo performers to celebrate the victory of their organizing campaign. The campaign concluded with election results of 91–21 in favor of being represented by SAG-AFTRA. This victory is a historic and critical step in ending the double standard that has existed for decades between Spanish-speaking performers who work at Telemundo and performers that work on English-language programing at NBC, which owns Telemundo. The new bargaining unit will cover actors, stunt performers, singers and dancers working on scripted programs produced by Telemundo in the United States.
