Former SAG-AFTRA Co-President Roberta Reardon Tapped for New York Labor Post

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has selected former SAG-AFTRA Co-President Roberta Reardon as his commissioner of labor.

Reardon will take over for Mario Musolino, who had been the acting commissioner since former assemblyman Peter Rivera retired at the end of Cuomo’s first term.

Reardon also served as special liaison for common sense economics at AFL-CIO. She was the national president of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists for five years and became SAG-AFTRA co-president in 2012 when the unions merged.

Reardon was an active supporter of merging SAG and AFTRA throughout her time as an AFTRA officer. She became AFTRA’s final president in 2007 when she was selected to fill the unexpired term of John Connolly, who resigned to lead Actors Equity.

She is also a member on the board of trustees for the AFTRA Health and Retirement Fund, the Actors Fund of America and the New York City Labor Council.

Reardon narrowly lost the New York presidency of SAG-AFTRA to incumbent Mike Hodge in 2013 by 118 votes out of more than 6,000 following a spirited campaign.
