SAG-AFTRA Keeping December’s Cuba Trip Under Wraps

18 April 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-AFTRA sent a high-powered seven-person delegation to the Havana Film Festival in early December — the union’s first official visit to the island since the 1959 Cuban Revolution — and has kept most of the details under wraps since.

The only official announcement came in February from a single paragraph in Los Angeles Local president Jane Austin’s eight-paragraph message to the Los Angeles members, who comprise about half of the union’s 160,000 members. The message disclosed the organizers of the festival had invited SAG-aftra to participate and then discussed the trip in general terms.

“As one of the members that traveled on this trip, I am pleased to report that it was very productive,” Austin said. “We planted the union flag and laid a very solid foundation for our performers who will be working there in the future. It was also fascinating to learn that our fellow performers in Cuba are »

Gabrielle Carteris Selected as SAG-AFTRA President

9 April 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gabrielle Carteris has become the president of SAG-AFTRA for the next 16 months as the successor to the late Ken Howard, who died March 23.

SAG-aftra’s next election will take place in August 2017.

3 April 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SAG-aftra and the advertising industry have reached a tentative agreement on a new master contract.

The two sides made the annnouncement Sunday but did not disclose any details, including how many years the deal covers.

The joint announcement said that a deal had been reached at 3 a.m. Sunday in New York City after seven weeks of negotiations. The contract covers about $1 billion in annual wages for performers.

Both sides have declined to comment on the talks, which launched Feb. 17 in New York City with the pledge that a news blackout would be in effect until there was a deal in place.

SAG-aftra and the advertising industry had extended the expiration of the current three-year master contract on Thursday by two days to Saturday night. »

SAG-aftra Maintains Silence on Ad Industry Talks as Expiration Date Nears

30 March 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SAG-aftra and the advertising industry have maintained seven weeks of silence during commercial contract talks — even with the current master contract expiring Thursday.

Both sides have declined to comment on the talks, which launched Feb. 17 in New York City with the pledge that a news blackout would be in effect until there was a deal in place.

The current three-year contract covers roughly $1 billion in annual earnings for performers, but the union has made scant efforts to mobilize its 160,000 members about the issues. It campaigned between October and January against ad agency Droga5 using SAG-aftra members for non-union ads, an assertion that the agency said was not true, then dropped off a petition on Jan. 12 with 8,000 signatures at the agency’s headquarters.

SAG-aftra-elected leaders also conducted a required series of “wages and working conditions” members-only meetings in the fall to hammer out a bargaining proposal, but it never disclosed »

Patricia Richardson Withdraws as Ken Howard’s Replacement as SAG-aftra President

25 March 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Update, 4:36 p.m. — Patricia Richardson has declared that she does not want to succeed the late Ken Howard as president of SAG-aftra.

A Change.org petition drive was launched Thursday for Richardson to replace Howard. Richardson received 46% of the vote last August in a spirited electoral challenge to Howard, who died on Wednesday.

But Richardson told Variety that she was not comfortable with taking that course.

“While I really do appreciate the sentiments of the members asking me to run as the next President of SAG-aftra my feeling is that when the members elected Ken Howard they also endorsed his party and their philosophy,” she said.

“Therefore it seems right to me that Gabrielle Carteris, who is our Executive Vice President and current acting President should assume the rest of Ken’s term as President at our upcoming Board meeting. Gabrielle shares Ken’s beliefs and worked closely with him. »

24 March 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ken Howard, the president of SAG-aftra and a veteran character actor in TV and film, has died. He was 71.

Howard was an Emmy and Tony winner who was highly regarded by those in the entertainment community, winning election to become president of the national chapter of the Screen Actors Guild in 2009.

24 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Ken Howard, president of SAG-aftra, passed away at his home near Los Angeles yesterday at 71. “An actor for nearly 50 years, Howard came to union leadership late in his career led by friends who asked him in 2008 to help them stabilize the then-troubled Screen Actors Guild,” said a statement from the union. “Thinking he might serve one two-year term on SAG’s board, Howard met destiny and committed himself body and soul to the job. Standing for election as SAG president a year later, he believed he had found the work he was meant to do. In a 2014 SAG-aftra Magazine message, Howard wrote to members that serving them as president of the union was “the most important thing I have ever done.” Before taking on the leadership position, Howard was best known for his work on stage and screen.
