Non-diparage agreement violations between SAG and AFTRA (Mar. 12, 2009)

In the first public reaction we’ve seen to NED David White’s e-mailed warning today to SAG leaders warning that there have been apparent violations of the non-disparagement agreement between SAG and AFTRA, one Membership First supporter apparently has decided that the ability to disparage is more important than his SAG positions. Yosemite Stokesberry, a member of the National Background Committee, posted a message at Actors Access saying that he has sent the following e-mail to White:

“After receiving the reminder about this agreement I Herby resign from any and all Committees I may be on. How dare the Board try to muzzle the members like they have muzzled the head of this union. I find this agreement and those who implemented it discussting. This is no longer a Union but a dictatorship. Yosemite Stokesberry, Once a Proud SAG member.”

Stokesberry closed his message by urging all other members of committees to resign.

The Non Disparagement Agreement was put in place by former NED Doug Allen.
