The unions SAG and AFTRA have been in discussions to merge for what seems like forever. As they actually approach a final resolution to generate more union power for talent, what will change? Combining two powerful and independent entities is no easy task, but The Hollywood Reporter is finally projecting answers for current union members and those looking to join the union in the near future.
There's been a lot of discussion about how dues will change if SAG and AFTRA merge, but no one's made it easy for you to know exactly what will happen to your own. For a detailed breakdown -- and a graph that encompasses earnings from $0 to $250K, see The Hollywood Reporter. Whether you're SAG-only or a dual cardholder (or if you're AFTRA-only or even a broadcaster), the graph will show you exactly what will happen to your dues if merger passes.
