Welcome to our new readers, and to those who are carrying over from the former Sagwatch site. Sagwatch proved that there is a vibrant and articulate community of members, formerly of SAG and/or AFTRA, and now of SAG-AFTRA, who care deeply about the future of their unions. We hope in this site to continue providing a forum for information and discussion of all sides of the issues that will inevitably confront SAG-AFTRA as it works to define itself as a single union and deal with the challenges presented by today’s evolving media and technology landscape.
As with Sagwatch, we have deliberately kept our names out of the limelight because we didn’t want it to be a matter of what films, shows and campaigns we’ve done, or what we’ve booked, that dictates how people read our postings. Either you agree, or you disagree –- but with the ideas we’ve put forth, not with us personally.
There is no connection, financial or otherwise, between this site and SAG-AFTRA. The postings here represent our views as union members. Expression of these views is protected by federal labor law.
If you find we’ve made mistakes, let us know. We don’t care what your credits are, we care about getting it right.
Thank you for visiting, and we hope you will find this site interesting and useful.
