SAG-AFTRA is gearing up to negotiate the TV/Theatrical Contracts that expire June 30, 2017. As part of the process, the union needs to hear from you. 

Known as the wages and working conditions process, or W&W for short, a series of meetings are being held in SAG-AFTRA’s James Cagney Boardroom in Los Angeles and nationwide. This is the most direct way that ALL members can influence and have a voice in the contract negotiations. The negotiating committee and staff use information and observations gathered from these W&W meetings to understand what contract provisions are most important to members and what might need to be modified.

L.A. Local President’s Message

Jane Austin

It is hard to believe, but another summer is over. It is time to reflect over the past months and focus on the year ahead. 

It has been a year since members voted for me as their national secretary-treasurer and the Los Angeles Local president. I take your confidence and trust very seriously. Over the past 12 months, I have attended many member meetings, caucuses, events and programs to engage and converse with various constituents to hear concerns and opinions about SAG-AFTRA. I have learned much during this time and I plan to continue this practice in the upcoming year. Working with the Local Board and chairs, my goal is to shape a cohesive elected leadership that forwards our strength and contracts and brings valuable programs and events to our local members. It has been very rewarding to watch attendance numbers grow at the Los Angeles Local events and see our members engage and take advantage of what their union offers. Click here to read more.
