Hodge re-elected prexy of SAG’s N.Y. division

USAN member defeats Sam Robards for two-year term

Mike Hodge has defeated Sam Robards and retained the presidency of the New York division of the Screen Actors Guild for a two-year term.

Hodge, who headed a 14-candidate slate for the United Screen Actors Nationwide, broke the news Thursday before SAG announced the results.

Ken Howard was also re-elected prexy of SAG’s national board. Like Howard, Hodge has been a supporter of the push for SAG to merger with AFTRA.

“We’ve led the way on merger, and it’s clear that members are ready and eager for it to happen,” Hodge said. “We’re excited to continue that work and look forward to delivering a detailed plan to the SAG and AFTRA boards in January.”

USAN has dominated the seats repping New York on SAG’s national board in recent years but faced a challenge from Robards’ upstart One Strong Union faction. USAN, which has been adamantly in favor of merging SAG with the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists, received backing from Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin plus current SAG prexy Ken Howard and secretary-treasurer Amy Aquino.

Reps of the two unions have been hammering out a merger plan for presentation to the national boards in January. New York reps have about 25% of the seats on the 71-member SAG national board.

One Strong Union, which ran a slate of 11 candidates, also supports merging SAG with AFTRA and emphasized that it would provide “integrity, transparency and inclusion.”
