The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) announced on October 12 that it has signed a historic cooperative agreement with the Asociación Nacional de Actores (ANDA), the labor union that represents performers in Mexico.
“We are honored and privileged to stand strong with ANDA, an important leader in the Latin American labor community,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. “Their top leaders joined us today to sign a historic agreement designed for this new era of cross-border and multilingual production, pledging to consider joint bargaining in appropriate areas, such as Spanish-language dubbing.”
ANDA’s General Secretary Jesús Ochoa, Secretary of Interior and Exterior Marco Treviño, and Secretary of Labor Alejandro Calva participated in the signing.
The agreement includes provisions for collaboration on contract and rule enforcement, organizing, and technology initiatives.
