CARTERIS SEEKS RE-ELECTION

A MESSAGE FROM GABRIELLE CARTERIS

"While our employers are consolidating and attempting to squeeze our earnings, we have proven that a united front is our best weapon in fighting for fair wages, safety on sets and protection of all our members—especially those who are most vulnerable.

As SAG-AFTRA President, I’ve seen first-hand the power of our members. With fierce determination we won the Interactive strike, revolutionized the Commercials contract, and transformed High Budget Streaming residuals. We’ve set the stage for our future and demonstrated both the necessity and incredible power of unions.

Even in the midst of a rapidly changing economy, SAG-AFTRA is leading the fight against sexual harassment and age discrimination, harnessing the power of innovative technology to deepen our enforcement and ensure we are capturing all of our residuals, and expanding protections and coverage for stunt performers and coordinators. This is a great start but my work is not done. With your support, I pledge to continue devoting my time, energy and passion to fight for every SAG-AFTRA member.”

~Gabrielle Carteris, President of SAG-AFTRA

“Anger without a plan is destructive. A show of force without an effective strategy is ruinous. Gabrielle has demonstrated her ability to channel strong passions and a broad spectrum of ideas in order to get real results. This strategy led to an unprecedented and innovative Commercials Contract which paves a pathway back to union commercial work. Gabrielle Carteris absolutely has my vote.”

“Under the leadership of Gabrielle Carteris and Unite for Strength, SAG-AFTRA is now at the forefront on issues that disproportionately affect women, creating comprehensive solutions to protect our work, physical safety and mental health. From creating the only 24/7 sexual harassment hotline in the entertainment industry, to fighting age discrimination through legislation and creating a code of conduct prohibiting private meetings in hotel rooms and residences; SAG-AFTRA is leading the fight for equality. This is the kind of leadership SAG-AFTRA needs and I fully support the re-election of Gabrielle as SAG-AFTRA President.”

about us

our philosophy

Unite for Strength is not just a political party.

Unite for Strength is a MOVEMENT.

A movement that started by merging SAG and AFTRA to form the most powerful union in the world.

A movement that continues today because we believe that you deserve:

Money in your pocket. Safety on your set. And security for you and your family.

In case you missed it, SAG-AFTRA has elections, and YOU get to decide which of your fellow members will volunteer their time on YOUR behalf.

When you fill out your ballot, don't vote for a political party.

Vote for a movement.

Vote for inclusion. Vote for vision. Vote for results.

Vote, Unite for Strength

Our platform

money in your pocket

Working together as a national team we’ve successfully negotiated contracts that have put over one billion additional dollars into members’ pockets. We will continue to increase our residuals, create more opportunities to work, and fight for better pay in every negotiation.

SECURITY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

We saw the health plans merged. A feat that never would have been accomplished had UFS not led the charge to merge SAG and AFTRA. We will continue our work to expedite safe merger of the pension plans, and ensure that both your health and pension remain financially secure.

safety on your set

In addition to an emphasis on new Set and Stunt Safety guidelines with anonymous hotline reporting options, we led on creating the first ever industry standard Sexual Harassment Code of Conduct; including new provisions in our Commercials and Network Television Code contracts calling for the end of auditions in hotels and private residences.

proven leadership

Not only have we secured contracts worth over one billion dollars for members, we have made SAG-AFTRA financially stable resulting in record level surpluses.
