RBD Backs Merger Concept
The Screen Actors Guild Regional Branch Division Board of Directors voted unanimously during its annual meeting, the Regional Branch Division Conference, held in May in Washington, D.C., to endorse the creation of one union to cover all performers.
Screen Actors Guild President Ken Howard, who was in attendance with Secretary-Treasurer Amy Aquino, said, “The Regional Branch Division of Screen Actors Guild is the vital and important voice of our membership in the Branches. I’m pleased that they so strongly endorsed the idea of one union for all performers.”
The RBD includes 20 Branches spanning from Boston to Hawaii. Nearly 28,000 Screen Actors Guild members who work in film and television live in the Regional Branches.
