Starting today, Actors’ Equity Association will be retweeting their members’ tweets all weekend.
They are joined by American Rights at Work and the other entertainment unions: SAG-AFTRA, IATSE, Directors Guild of America (DGA), Writers Guild of America (WGA). Also joining in are the National Hockey League (NHL), National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB).
It’s all for a special Labor Day weekend “Tweet-a-Thon” to raise awareness of union membership and labor organizations.
Use the hashtag #UnionMember and show your Union pride by either tweeting a pic of your Equity card or at a Labor Day picnic or parade. Heck, tweet while you’re sitting on the couch in your underwear while you’re trying to escape from the heat.
To make it easy, they’ve drafted some sample tweets to copy and paste:
Have a fun and safe holiday weekend fellow Union members!
