SAG Actors, we wanted to bring to your attention an editorial written by voice actor Hector Herrera that appeared in the Spring 2009 edition of Screen Actor; the Screen Actors Guild Magazine that goes out to all SAG members. Hector is a National Spanish Language Media Task Force member for the Screen Actors Guild. The editorial is entitled, “Ask What You Can Do For Your Union.”

Hector Herrera writes:

“Many of our members believe that the union is a source of employment and that the union has a magic wand that solves all our problems. This is not the case.

If you are waiting for SAG to rescue you from your economic and career problems, I wish you good luck and patience because you’re going to be waiting a long time. The only person who can solve those problems is you.”

What is Hector’s answer? Integrity. Acting with integrity as a union actor. This means acting responsibly and respecting the contract that you signed when you joined the union. It means participating in SAG meetings, events, and volunteering when necessary, including phone banks.

SAG members … get involved!

Thank you Hector Herrera for your inspiring editorial.
