Toronto, ON (September 24, 2018) — ACTRA stands in solidarity with our SAG-AFTRA sisters and brothers as they strike against advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty, LLC (BBH).
The SAG-AFTRA National Board has unanimously voted to issue a strike authorization with members, instructing them not to accept any work for BBH, which is illegally attempting to abandon its union Commercials contract with SAG-AFTRA.
BBH (USA) is not signatory to ACTRA’s National Commercial Agreement (NCA). Given BBH (USA) is not signatory to the ACTRA NCA, and in support of SAG-AFTRA, ACTRA is instructing its 25,000 members across Canada not to accept any work from BBH (USA).
For ACTRA members who have a question about the strike and if/how it impacts you, please contact your local Branch.
