SAG bans 5 over strike rules

Hollywood branch issues limitations for at least six months

The Screen Actors Guild has banned five additional strikebreakers from joining SAG after the Hollywood-based actors applied for membership.

The bans, which were all at least for six months, were issued by the Hollywood branch’s membership application review committee based on incidents of crossing picket lines during the Guild’s six-month strike against advertisers last year. SAG did not disclose the names of those excluded.

The committee previously issued a maximum five-year ban against one strikebreaker. The panel has allowed six other applicants to join after reviewing allegations of performing struck work.

SAG’s strikebreaker review committee has collected evidence of more than 1,500 actors — including over 100 SAG members — performing struck work.
