Hi All:

I join with Dee Baker in urging you to attend the Interactive vote meeting at SAG if you work the Interactive contract.

Dee’s lament about non affected members being allowed to vote is something that many of us have tried to address, however, the Board of Directors has been dominated by those who oppose such logic… But I digress.

Whatever your personal preference on this contract – show up if you want a voice in the matter.

Dear Interactive Voice Over Friends,

If you have a strong opinion regarding the “atmospheric voices” provision in SAG’s proposed interactive contract, you owe it to yourself to show up to Tuesday night’s (Oct 27th) meeting at SAG, 5757 Wilshire in the Cagney Room for their referendum on the interactive contract.

It could be that any SAG member who shows up can vote, whether they work the contract or not, which I find unfortunate as it at once dilutes and politicizes the process, in my view. The invite says it’s for those who work the contract. There was some of this at last week’s AFTRA info meeting, but the turnout was fortunately mostly affected performers, so the weight of our voices ended up having a solid impact.

This will apparently be the deciding vote on the SAG side. Other cities are voting as well. Only those that show up get to vote at SAG, in contrast to AFTRA, which will apparently mail out ballots nationally to all those that work the contract.

Looks like you need to RSVP to the email below.



Tuesday, Oct 27th,
Los Angeles: 7:30-9 p.m. PDT
James Cagney Board Room, ground floor
5757 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
RSVP to Mary Hashimoto via email at
Parking will be validated.

Bring your paid up SAG card.
