SAG to Cut 8% of Staff

Apr 21, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The Screen Actors Guild plans to cut 8% of its staff, or 35 workers, as it faces a $6.5 million deficit following declines in its investment income and membership dues, the Los Angeles Times reports. The union has lost some work to the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, which has picked up more prime-time TV pilots, while actors have seen work dry up as studios cut back on movie and TV production, the newspaper says. The job cuts will be made in its organizing and information technology departments, among others, the Times reports.
