There is a Hollywood Membership meeting this Sunday at the WGA Theater. Of course you wouldn’t know it by casually perusing the SAG Website! It took me several minutes to find the information that’s posted below! I finally found it—BUT only after typing “Hollywood Membership Meeting” in the Search Window. Hmmm, If one didn’t know better, one would think that Melissa and the current leadership were trying to keep it a secret.

Of course, it wasn’t all that hard to discover that Extension had passed! Or to access Melissa’s Message to the membership in which she reminded us of the epic significance of passing Extension, “It is the day when we as a union decided to leave the old ways.” And that Her and Bob will be ” mounting a member-driven contract campaign to make the case for our bargaining priorities!” Mounting being the optimum word!

Hmmm, you would have thought that one of the first steps would have been to mount a better promotion of the membership meeting! Ah, uh, after two years, Many members are also still WAITNG for that promised member driven campaign to educate members about the advantages of franchising the ATA/NATR. Hey, maybe they will MOUNT them both at the same time. Speaking of mounting, it looks like for the present, we’ll just have to settle for mounting dues, with an increase planned to make up for that two point Mil wasted on the Consolidation Mounting!

Oh, well, You have to admire Ms. Gilbert for NOT DODGING this meeting, and mounting that stage Sunday to face the Hollywood Membership to answer what should prove to be some very tough questions!

Of course to do anything else on her part would be seen by her fellow Hollywood Members as a Prickly Gesture!

A.L. Miller SW Editor & Chief WOOF !
