Equity topper won’t re-up

In his tenure, union membership increased from 28,678 to 46,000

Alan Eisenberg will not seek another term as exec director of Actors’ Equity. His agreement expires October 2006, at which time he will have served 25 years with the thesp union.

Eisenberg made his announcement Tuesday at the monthly meeting of the union’s governing body. At the meeting, Eisenberg spoke of projects he plans to complete in his remaining 20 months. That agenda includes affordable housing for actors, an invigorated Actors’ Equity Foundation and an expanded communication/education campaign.

In his tenure, union membership has increased from 28,678 to 46,000 and workweeks have increased by more than 70,000 weeks annually. Earnings for actors have jumped from $118.6 million to $250.3 million.

In the 1996 Production Contract, Eisenberg negotiated an employer-paid 3% 401(k), one of the first such benefits in the industry. The new contract includes an experimental touring program, proposed by the Eisenberg negotiating team, which is designed to foster more Equity tours.
