Actors’ Equity Association president Kate Shindle is urging stage actors to avoid breaking the SAG-AFTRA strike, according to a recent message to Equity members.

SAG-AFTRA members are currently on strike against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). Shindle warned that “the other side will try to pit us against each other to keep churning out content. Don’t fall for it.”

In her message, Shindle stressed the importance of solidarity between the unions during this dispute over issues like wages, working conditions, diversity, and sustainability.

Shindle advised that if offered work by an AMPTP employer, actors should “proactively and aggressively avoid” accepting struck work. She said actors should contact SAG-AFTRA directly rather than rely on third parties claiming work is not covered by the strike.

“When in doubt – or to report strike-breaking activity – contact @sagaftra ASAP,” Shindle wrote. She said performing struck work undermines the strike even if the actor is not on camera.

Shindle described the strike as “a generational battle for a fair and functioning entertainment industry” against employers with “nearly unlimited resources.” She emphasized that union strength relies on numbers and commitment to the cause.

The SAG-AFTRA strike is not expected to directly impact Broadway productions at this time. Actors typically hold dual membership in both SAG-AFTRA and Actors’ Equity Association which covers Broadway.
