Below an alert SAG-AFTA is sending to members:
This is an urgent notice regarding Grey Global Group and 23 Townhouse.
SAG-AFTRA has serious concerns about signatory advertising agency Grey Global and its relationship to 23 Townhouse (a.k.a. Townhouse 23). The union believes Grey Global may be trying to produce non-union commercials through 23 Townhouse and avoiding its commitment to the wages, terms and conditions in the SAG-AFTRA Commercials Contracts.
We have tried to contact Grey Global about these potential violations—without success. Today, Thursday April 28, 2016, in the absence of a response from Grey Global, the union issued a formal Claim and Information Request in advance of potential arbitration and NLRB actions.
You can help move this investigation forward. If you or anyone you know has worked on a 23 Townhouse production OR if you’ve seen any info about 23 Townhouse and Grey Global while on set, please click on this email address: email@example.com.
This will launch a blank email so you can provide us details (dates worked, advertiser, production info, etc).
A union staff member will follow up with you. Any info provided is confidential.
Talk about your Grey areas!
