TORONTO (July 13, 2023) – ACTRA’s 28,000 members from across Canada stand in steadfast solidarity with SAG-AFTRA and its members in their effort to achieve a fair and equitable contract.

“We recognize that their fight is our fight and is for the good of all performers,” said Eleanor Noble, ACTRA National President.

ACTRA will support SAG-AFTRA and its members by all lawful means, as they begin strike action at midnight tonight.

ACTRA will support SAG-AFTRA’s refusal to issue new Global Rule One Memorandum of Understanding that undermine the strike during its duration. 

“Together we will continue working to ensure performers are respected and achieve fair compensation for the value we bring to every production,” said Noble.
