"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

what others Are saying


“There’s no one better for President of SAG-AFTRA than Gabrielle Carteris. She has strength, intelligence and compassion—the hallmarks of a true leader. Along with Unite for Strength and other leaders around the country she will continue to carry our union into the future. I absolutely support her re-election as SAG-AFTRA President.”

Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony, and SAG-AFTRA Life Achievement Award winner Rita Moreno

what others Are saying


“We are at a crucial time for unions in our country and around the world. Now, more than ever, we need battle-tested leadership that supports workers and the protections our union has always guaranteed. Gabrielle is a fighter. She understands that strong contracts, rigorous enforcement, and comprehensive safeguards are what members truly need and deserve. Gabrielle and Unite for Strength are exactly the people with the courage and conviction required at this critical moment."

Emmy award winning actor James Cromwell

what others Are saying


“Whether convincing a governor to sign a bill protecting against age discrimination, establishing guidelines to safeguard against sexual harassment or working with stunt professionals to achieve safer sets, Gabrielle is always fighting for each and every member. That is why I am proud to support Gabrielle Carteris for SAG-AFTRA President and the entire Unite for Strength and USAN teams.”

Oscar winner Octavia spencer

what others Are saying


“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.”

Oscar winner J.K. Simmons

what others Are saying


“I support the reelection of Gabrielle and her team to maintain the progressive and compassionate leadership that SAG-AFTRA members deserve, especially now, in this ever-changing industry.”

Oscar nominee and Emmy award winning actor Bryan Cranston

what others Are saying


“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.”

Oscar winning actress and Activist Geena Davis

what others Are saying


I think the smartest strategy for us is to stick with someone who has done a lot to secure the greatest opportunities for actors in the modern era. I hope you will join me in supporting Gabrielle Carteris and the entire USAN/UFS team.

President Gabrielle Carteris has passionately and strategically led SAG-AFTRA, addressing current issues and assessing future challenges.

Because of their leadership SAG-AFTRA is stronger than ever. That is why they have my absolute endorsement.

sag-aftra president

camryn manheim

sag-aftra secretary-treasurer

I’ve worked as a series regular, background artist, day player, commercial actor, V/O artist, and recurring guest star.  I’ve also successfully run my own investment business for thirty years. I’m keenly aware of the technological changes affecting our industry and how they impact our members. The rapid growth of streaming services requires someone with business acumen to protect our rights in the evolving digital age. Coming from a long line of activists, I understand the challenges and know what’s at stake. I’m a fresh voice with fresh eyes and a business mind, and ready to advocate for everyone.

clyde kusatsu

los angeles vice president

Michelle hurd

los angeles president

I have been a proud union actor since 1994. As a journeyman actor, I have worked many contracts. From soap operas, commercials, VO and on-camera, to background, stand-in, day players, guest stars, recurring arcs and principal series regulars. I fully understand that every contract we work is important and deserves a strong voice fighting for our rights and security in this changing market. Having served on the board before, I understand the intricacies of negotiations and the need to stay diligent to protect our rights in this shifting playing field. I would like to be that voice.

ellen crawford

los angeles vice president

I believe in community. This business can be lonely, intimidating and impersonal. But we all share the joy of our craft. In my ten years of service, I have dedicated my focus to bringing members together... to discuss challenges, learn new skills, and connect as fellow artists socially and creatively. We are the union. Union gives strength. Very proud to have been instrumental in establishing NextGen Performers. Currently chair of MOVE, LA Local Organizing and National Organizing Committees and VP on the California Labor Federation. Also serve on LA and National Executive, National Government Review, Health Care Safety Net, Film Society and Reinstatement Obligations Review Committees.

Unite for strength's National Board Candidates

Woody Schultz

Despite a nationwide attack on unions, I’ve seen SAG-AFTRA grow enormously in size and strength during my ten years representing you on our national and local boards. I’m so proud of what we have accomplished: a revolutionary new commercials contract; multi-pronged initiative combatting sexual harassment; health plan merger; direct deposit of residuals; historic unionization of Telemundo; expanded California film/television tax incentives; innovative Short Project Agreement; first-ever residuals for video games and so much more. I feel there are so many incredible things we can still accomplish. Vote for me so I can keep fighting for you!

Stacey Travis

I have been honored to serve on Local and National boards. Making a living acting under multiple contracts over the years has compelled me to serve our members. I will continue our fight for online privacy. As Chair of LA GAPP, we helped secure five more years of Tax incentives in CA to 2025 and lobbied DC for a bill to reclaim our tax deductions. Helped create SPA and will work to continue increasing our pay in Low Budget New Media & Films and improve our claims resolutions. Online Privacy (Chair), Government Affairs and Public Policy (Chair), Low Budget (Chair), SAGIndie, TV/Theatrical, Military Personnel and Families Support, National & Local Women’s committee.

Lisa Vidal

It has been an honor for me to serve on the National Board of SAG-AFTRA, representing our body of performers. UFS and Gabrielle Carteris continue to fight to make us an even stronger, bolder, innovative union. Please re-elect me so I can continue to fight with you for even more productive change. We still face many challenges and changes in our industry and I need your support to be able to continue the fight! I will passionately continue to advocate for more diversity fairness, better health plans and benefits, and better care and treatment of performers! Thank you.

Yvette Nicole Brown

I am running for the National Board because I believe in our union and the good it does for each of us. As a member for 23 years who has been blessed to work in nearly every area of the industry, I know that there is no industry issue too big for all of us to handle. Further, I know that we are better when we all realize that we’re in this together. I look forward to being a productive part of all the good we will do in the future.

Gabrielle Carteris

I’m asking for your vote because SAG-AFTRA has a huge impact on performers’ ability to make a living and I’m experienced in making positive change for members. I led the groundbreaking Commercials negotiations, the NLRB victory during the BBH strike, and fought for industry respect for members working background. I’ve championed legislation to eliminate sexual harassment, ageism on IMDb, and to protect members’ digital image/voice rights. Negotiated a direct, comprehensive agreement with Netflix that eliminates free bargaining in low budget SVOD, improves protections against outrageous exclusivity terms/options, and for the first time covers performance capture.

Tom Choi

I will continue to fight for SAG-AFTRA to keep pace in the ever-changing landscape of content creation and advertising. As the industry moves forward so must our Union. Proud negotiation committee member on the new, historic, innovative and industry-praised 2019 Commercials Contract. My ongoing commitment to the union includes: SAG Pension Trustee, LA Board Member, Negotiation committee member for the Disney It’s A Laugh and Nickelodeon Uptown contract. Member of the following committees: Professional Representatives, Asian Pacific Americans in Media, Equal Employment Opportunities, Commercial Performers, Los Angeles Executive. I am business-strategy oriented with an MBA in Finance.

Chantal Cousineau

I stand rooted in the principle of EQUALITY. I will focus on your safety, support, and worth. An equal, inclusive and diverse playing field is the way forward. Aligned with the wonderful UniteforStrength slate, I can continue to affect lasting change. An example of that work is legislative reform (#TakeTheLead bills #StrongerCA #SB224), innovative new contracts, and real time workplace support. I see and hear all of you and would be grateful to be of service as a delegate, local, and national board member.

Ellen Crawford

The future is personal. As we each face revolutions in technology, creativity, and business models, we can either pine for the “good old days” or join together to turn this new world to our advantage. We can do this! The more we share knowledge and network, particularly with member communities which have felt previously disengaged, the more power we have collectively and individually. As chair of MOVE, National and Local Organizing, and a VP on the California Labor Federation, I see what committed members can accomplish. Also on LA and National Executive, National Government Review, Health Care Safety Net, Film Society and Reinstatement Obligations Review Committees.

Michael Cudlitz

My union has protected me and my family, so it’s time for me to do my part. We’ve seen resources wasted trying to stop a merger of groups with basically the same membership fighting for the same things. The SAG-AFTRA merger was the single smartest thing both unions have ever done. I’m proud of the current SAG-AFTRA leadership: I support them in the direction going forward. We must be strong to fight for what we believe in, but we must also be self-aware and realize if the fight is eroding the very ground we stand on.

Patrick Fabian

A working actor for two decades, I'm honored to have served both locally and nationally on the SAG-AFTRA boards. As our business models continue to rapidly change, I want to help our members and union shift and change with it, to ensure that all new work is covered work. Please help me achieve that goal by supporting me and my fellow candidates from Unite For Strength.

Kate Flannery

I served on the SAG Board during the critical merger of our legacy unions, and am currently serving on the SAG-AFTRA Los Angeles Local Board. I believe the power of our union is contingent upon us showing up and speaking up. I am grateful to all who served before me to protect me in my career. Now, I would be honored once again to represent my fellow actors, singers, dancers, broadcasters, stunt performers, and background actors. I’m asking for your support so I can help protect our interests in this burgeoning digital age and the numerous new media platforms.

Spencer Garrett

As a working character actor for over 30 years, I've witnessed first-hand the rapid changes in our industry. I have worked every contract, yet no matter the scale of the project, our concerns as artists have a common, universal theme: “Respect our humanity. Reward our work.” I have sat on Wages and Working Conditions, Low Budget Film, Honors and Tributes and Film Society committees. I like to be 'in the room where it happens' to ensure that as the industry shifts and changes at an ever-expanding pace, our LIVELIHOODS will grow with the changing times. It would be my honor to serve the membership again.

Adam Goldberg

I figured my 30th year as a working actor was a good time to contribute to the union of which I’ve been a beneficiary for so long. As an actor/writer/director and respective guild member I offer a unique perspective, but my allegiance has always been to the guild which has been my primary support system. Having worked consistently in an ever changing landscape I feel strongly our security and compensation needs to change accordingly. My focus is on salary and residuals, in particular regard to new media and limited series, “relocation fees,” and 12 hour days. Proudy Unite For Strength.

Clyde Kusatsu

My fight for inclusion began at Northwestern University in 1966 as the lone person of color. I am grounded in the values of the working actor and derive great purpose in working for our membership. We work to unionize the unorganized -- TELEMUNDO. We defend our members against predators by ending auditions in hotel rooms and private residences. We work to improve efficiencies, e.g., direct deposit. The entertainment landscape is evolving; we must be nimble in confronting these challenges with tactical insight so our union can survive and thrive. Let’s move forward together. INCLUSION.VISION.RESULTS.

Camryn Manheim

The biggest challenge confronting SAG-AFTRA is the elevated bargaining power that producers have over actors. We’re fighting to keep key benefits that affect our livelihoods. Fragmenting residuals, buyouts, top of show ceilings, exclusivity, and numerous other unfair practices have financially devastated many members. As a proud union member for over 30 years, working under many of our contracts, I’ve learned that unless we proceed strategically, the problems we face will only be magnified for the next generation. We must expand the successes and vision of the current leadership and prepare for the bold changes needed for long-term success.

Marisol Nichols

I believe in a union that fights for all members, whether they work steadily or sporadically. As we are meeting the revolution in media with innovative contracts, we need to refine and expand our reach to make sure our members understand those contracts. I’m proud we’ve put in safety and harassment hotlines for actors on the set who need help, advice, or guidance. Our gains for members are only gains if they know how to use them. Build union strength in the workplace and in the lives of our members by arming them with information.

Bobbie Bates

Union member since 1970. 26+ years vested SAG and AFTRA. Advocate for dancers and merger since 1978. Service: Local, National boards, Delegate since 1980. Negotiation Committees: Commercials, TV/Theatrical, NetCode, currently Music Videos. Chaired and served on many committees. Much is changed and much accomplished. SAG-AFTRA has been heroic in keeping up and ahead of forever changing industry and morphing technology. Our current leaders and staff are doing stellar work worldwide, and there is so much more to do. I would be honored to continue working on the National Board with them for you.

Factually Answered Questions

Click the Questions Below for Answers — Based on Actual Facts.

Are the pensions underfunded?

No they are not.
Both are considered in the green zone with a long term plan to be fully funded.

How do staff pensions work?
Can you tell me about the new Netflix deal?

This deal brought members great gains as well as leverage against the AMPTP for the upcoming TV/Theatrical negotiation.
The terms of the agreement were all drawn from the long wish list of member proposals over the last couple of years:

  • Created scale minimums for everything it produces—regardless of budget! That means no more $400/day offers from Netflix projects
  • Better theatrical residuals
  • Incorporates episodic/tv residual structure from last AMPTP negotiations which was a huge gain on the residual structure that was in existence before that
  • Covers performance capture
  • Substantially better exclusivity and options terms for performers
  • Sexual harassment protections in the contract

The proposed agreement was then brought to the TV/TH standing committee—who had the authority to reject and send it back—to discuss and vote on. They discussed the deal at length and then passed it overwhelmingly. The committee then sent it the National Board with a recommendation to approve.

The Board passed the deal overwhelmingly and NO ONE MADE A MOTION, nor even asked for it to go out to the membership, which they could have done.

Does it need to be sent out to the membership?
Per the SAG-AFTRA constitution large, multi-employer contracts like commercials and the TV/TH contract automatically go out to the membership. Single employer contracts like this new contract with Netflix does not have to, unless the board determines that it should.

What's the status of New Media residuals?
Can SAG-AFTRA unilaterally control the pension and health plans?
Should SAG-AFTRA buy or rent a building?
How is UFS leading the way on the issue of sexual harassment?

We are very proud of the work that we have been doing on this extremely important issue.

The work is ongoing, but the SAG-AFTRA website actually lists some of the many examples of what the union is doing to lead the way: 

  • Expanded our existing 24/7 safety hotline to include a specialized trauma line staffed by clinicians for those working in our jurisdiction who are experiencing, or who have suffered, sexual harassment or assault.
  • Customized, in-person training for over 100 first- and rapid-responder staff across the organization including specialized assessment and intervention training for field reps.
  • Achieved new provisions in our Commercials and Network Television Code contracts: explicit personal harassment protections and landmark language directly based on the first SAG-AFTRA sexual harassment code of conduct’s guideline calling for the end of auditions in hotels and private residences.
  • Held dozens of education and empowerment events in LA, NYC, Chicago, Georgia, Atlanta, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Oklahoma, Detroit, and other locations.
  • Hired expert staff on both coasts for intake and case management of harassment and discrimination complaints.
  • Introduced a dedicated service offering confidential crisis and short-term supportive counseling, education on individual rights and legal avenues, referrals to related resources and, when needed, referrals for other clinical services. Created through a collaborative effort of SAG-AFTRA, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, and the Actors Fund, which administers the program.
  • Advocated for the passage of crucial legislation that enhances and strengthens sexual harassment city and state laws in California, New York, Hawaii and elsewhere.
  • Sustained significant public policy efforts to go after tools of silence, expand the statute of limitations, allow independent contractors to sue, etc.
  • Sponsored and supported legislation that bans image-based sexual abuse. Specifically, two current bills that go after nonconsensual digitized nudity and sex scenes (the modern day body doubling violation).
  • Focused attention through the SAG-AFTRA podcast premiere episode: “Sexual Harassment, Have we Reached a Turning Point” and another in the first season: “Who Controls Your Rights: From Deepfakes to Resurrecting the Dead.”
  • Continued work with the International Federation of Actors (FIA) Sexual Harassment Work Group in developing a global code of conduct and guidelines to protect actors wherever they work.
  • Released the SAG-AFTRA Code of Conduct to the Actors Guild of India for their use as a template in developing sexual harassment provisions and industry standards for performers and others workers in the massive Indian film and television production business.
  • Continued our collaboration with AFL-CIO leadership and affiliated partners to create best-practice recommendations for the protection of workers across industries and geographies.
  • Advocated for global protections at the FIA executive conference in Tokyo, Japan. President and NED appeared on an expert panel on best practices in preventing sexual harassment. The conference, sponsored by the Japan Actors Union, hosted several hundred guests including ranking representatives from government, the entertainment industry, and performing artists organizations.
