Get Ready for Primetime: Voices for Diversity

As AFTRA members get ready for upcoming negotiations of Exhibit A of the AFTRA Network TV Code, it’s important that the voices of women, seniors, minorities, performers with disabilities, and the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) communities are heard.

Therefore, AFTRA and SAG will co-host bicoastal meetings to review the policy of No-Discrimination/Affirmative Action, and to discuss issues you’d like considered in the upcoming negotiations.  These meetings are open to all union members who work the contracts, and do not preclude individual caucus meetings of the above-mentioned group.

AFTRA’s “Exhibit A” is your union’s terms for dramas and situation comedies on primetime network television (ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox) and pay TV (HBO, Showtime, and other pay channels).  The non-discrimination policies are identical for both unions.

LOS ANGELES
Wednesday, February 20
6 pm – 8 pm
AFTRA’s Frank Maxwell Memorial Boardroom
5757 Wilshire Blvd., Lobby level

NEW YORK
