The Screen Actors Guild has suspended all union dues payments for SAG members serving on active duty in the U.S. armed forces. The Guild previously waived dues for members serving in the military during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
To arrange for the suspension of dues payments, SAG members in the armed forces or their families should write to the Guild in Hollywood.
A SAG official said he was not sure how many members would be affected since the union does not keep records of members’ military status. Dues will be suspended from the first date of active duty until one year after separation from the service.
