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

Dear Michigan Local Member,

It is crucial in the coming weeks that we work together and advocate for our fellow members and our local communities.  I also want to THANK our broadcast members who are on the front lines every day staying on top of developments in Michigan, in Windsor and around the world so that our communities are informed.  Thank you for your personal sacrifices to help keep us educated and safe!

Please know that during this difficult time, SAG-AFTRA’s top priority is the health, safety and well-being 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 Michigan Local, we have compiled critical resources available to members living in Michigan and Ontario 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 your local staff are working remotely to ensure the union’s core functions, including residuals processing, continue.

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. And please look out for one another.

In unity,

Eric Wydra
Michigan Local President
