Although the Board elections are always important, this year that is particularly true. Early in 2012 the Board will almost surely decide on the specifics of a merger with the other major actors union, AFTRA. This merger will effect, at a very minimum, the contracts with our many employers, our membership requirements, and our Pension and Health Plans.
If you were ever going to take the time to vote, this is the year.
I’m #3 on the ballot. The Hollywood Reporter has all the candidates listed here.
Candidates’ statements for the ballot were restricted to 100 words. In a shocker, I used fewer words than I could have. My statement is at the bottom.
“Pro-AFTRA merger. A combined union provides us maximum leverage. My other priorities: membership requirements; strong Pension & Health; Global Rule One; protections for background actors; and a powerful New Media presence. I bring a working actor’s perspective and have been a Board member since 2007. Current committees: New Technology, Disciplinary Review.”Tags: Hollywood Reporter, SAG-AFTRA
