Wait and watch. There will be ways to hire union talent for non-signatories. SAG is not going to turn down money. Not so much in the interest of their members but definitely in the interest of their p&h slush fund. Yes, they hope they can scare agencies into being signatory. But stand strong and don’t fall for it.

How about good for SAG standing strong and leveling the playing field finally for all
of us agencies that are signatory to the union. All the non sig agencies have done is enable our clients to not value the cost of talent nor production. They want the same a-level output for a quarter of the price. Everyone deserves to be paid for what they do. Clients are not the only people who should be making money. They have been taking advantage of productions (blue-collared union workers) and talent long enough. Over it.

... to join the union. All of these nonunion agencies produce high-volume celebrity spots, and have been able to do so with the help of third-party signatories. What will they do now that those signatories will not be available to them?

Does anyone else feel like SAG is on a power high since the BBH win?- will agencies ban together and turn on the union?

I agree with HOP and I too would love a link... had heard rumblings about this.

Maybe clients will be forced to work with SAG signatories. Ha, watch the old school agencies rise again and digital agencies like R/GA go back to focusing on websites.

If this goes through. And based on what happened with BBH I imagine it’s totally possible, the industry will change drastically. All the agencies who benefited by circumventing the unions will be in a tough spot.
