Demand a union contract or walk away

Rule One: Do not work non-union

Screen Actors Guild Members are required to follow the rules of their union, found, in part, on the backside of your union card. Rule One is the primary rule: You do not work non-union.

“No member shall work as a performer or make an agreement to work as a performer for any producer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the Guild which is in full force and effect.” - from the SAG Constitution

In plain language, that means that a SAG member must always work under a union contract, and must NEVER work non-union.

We Stand Together

Rule One is one of the founding principles and strengths of our union: we stand together as actors and do not work without a Guild contract.
