Welcome to the SAG-AFTRA Nevada Local


In November 2012 the official name for the local of our new union, SAG-AFTRA was officially set. While the name under SAG has for over 35 years been the Nevada Branch, a temporary name of Nevada Local was set since merger passed last spring. With this National Board vote, and a vote to approve the local constitution, it is official, the Nevada Local of the largest entertainment union in the world has been officially formed! 

It is time to join us, and stand up for union pride and professionalism in Nevada!  

 

This list is as of April, 2013


-Art Lynch, SAG-AFTRA Nevada National Board Director
