Like I said above, a comedy this ain’t. For all of us SAG-AFTRA members it’s more of a tragedy. And it goes something like this;
And you can throw this into the mess, ah, mix,,,SAG-AFTRA staff salaries represent 62% of our expenses each year and the rent is 14%.Well, there you go! What do we say in LA?

UPDATE, 12:50 PM: The SAG-AFTRA local elections results train keeps on rolling and now it has stopped in Chicago. The winners in the union’s Windy City contest were announced today after being tabulated on Wednesday. As with previous results from Miami, Hawaii, Dallas-Ft Worth and the Missouri Valley locals, the results are a combo of unopposed and balloted winners. With 3,687 ballots mailed out and 731 returned, Chicago has the second lowest return rate of the union’s first national election since it merged in the spring of 2012. Only Dallas-Ft Worth was lower with just 18.45% of its mailed out ballots returned compared to Chicago’s 19.83%. More results are expected later this week from other regions. The results of the National officer elections as well as the LA and NY local elections are expected on or just after August 15 once all the returned ballots are in.
