ABSTRACT
The article reports on the apprehensions of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) in working with other show business unions on organizing and bargaining in the U.S. SAG centered their debate on whether to join the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organization's (AFL-CIO) Industry Coordinating Committee for Arts Media and Entertainment, with emphasis on the AFL-CIO initiative with 10 other unions. The move threatens the autonomy of SAG in implementing policies and strategies.
