SAG-AFTRA Takes “First Step” To Merge Health Plans
The SAG-AFTRA union today began tentative moves to keep its pre-merger promise to join the separate Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) health care plans for members. SAG-AFTRA announced Sunday that beginning next summer, members with earnings of less than $15,100 split between SAG and AFTRA contracts “may be able to combine their earning to qualify for health insurance.” The SAG-AFTRA announcement is scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2014.
