DGA, IATSE and SAG-AFTRA Joint Statement on Back-to-work Procedure Collaboration

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

SAG-AFTRA, The DGA, and IATSE issued the following statement Wednesday:

We all want folks to get back to work as soon as possible, but we need to do it right. At this time, no final draft of the Industry Task Force White Paper exists, and it would be premature to agree to or comment on standards that have not even been finalized.

As we create our back-to-work plans, the level of coordination between our unions has been unprecedented in frequency and productivity.

In solidarity,

Thomas Schlamme
Directors Guild of America

Gabrielle Carteris
