SAG-AFTRA Cutting Regional Offices

More changes may be in store for Hollywood’s actors’ union, SAG-AFTRA.

Following an overwhelming member vote to merge SAG and AFTRA earlier this year, SAG-AFTRA officials voted to cut the amount of local offices from 33 to 25.

Richard Verrier with LATimes explained more about the vote. “The reduction is part of the process of integrating the two unions and reflects an effort to avoid duplications of regional offices representing the formerly separate unions that merged in March.” Verrier went on to say that “SAG-AFTRA officials did not say which offices might close as a result of the consolidations.”

Additionally, several board positions will be cut from the union. LATimes reports: “job cuts were nationwide and were mostly completed in September.”

SAG-AFTRA is not yet disclosing information about the local offices chosen for “consolidation.”
