SAG-AFTRA enlists zombies to fight Prop. 32

Guild schedules Halloween 'zombie lurch' to bolster opposition to measure

SAG-AFTRA has managed to combine zombies with its opposition to California’s Proposition 32, the campaign finance reform measure on the November ballot.

The union’s Los Angeles Local has scheduled a “zombie lurch” Wednesday on Halloween outside its headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard.

“Zombies have no voice — and neither will California workers if Prop. 32 passes!” the union said. “Prop. 32 is not the campaign finance reform it claims to be. It effectively will silence the voice of working families across California. That’s why SAG-AFTRA California members are joining with firefighters, nurses, teachers, the DGA, WGA, IATSE Locals, Teamsters and more in urging voters to reject Prop. 32.”

The union also said it will have supplies available at its headquarters for those wanting to freshen their zombie makeup.

Opponents have asserted that the proposition — dubbed the “Paycheck Protection” initiative — is aimed at curbing the political influence of unions by the banning the orgs from donating funds to political candidates and campaigns.

The measure would ban both corporate and union contributions to state and local candidates along with banning contributions by government contractors to the politicians who control contracts awarded to them and banning automatic deductions by corporations, unions, and government of employees’ wages to be used for politics.

About 60% of SAG-AFTRA’s 150,000 members live in California.
