Message from the President

Jane Bower

Hello SAG-AFTRA Michigan members!

This has been an inspirational quarter for our local. I want to thank our Local Board members who have tirelessly worked on your behalf to make our union stronger here in Michigan, throughout the Midwest and across the country.

The SAG-AFTRA Michigan Local was represented on the National Commercials Contract Negotiating Committee by our National Board member, Peter Tocco. That committee guided some very tough negotiations toward a new contract that was ratified overwhelmingly by the membership.

Your SAG-AFTRA Michigan Local Board is forging new relationships with educational institutions and working with staff to encourage and ensure that when work is secured, it is union work. Whether we are packing hundreds of pounds of food for the community at a membership meeting or simply speaking to a classroom full of future members, SAG-AFTRA Michigan is fueled by people power. And we could always use more! We welcome your ideas, your energy, your solidarity and your involvement.

Jayne Bower
President, Michigan Local
