SAG-AFTRA Mobilizes Against Telemundo Over Non-Union Stance
SAG-AFTRA, which has been quietly organizing over the last several months against NBCUniversal’s Telemundo unit, amped up the pressure on the non-union broadcaster with the announcement of an advisory council of government officials and labor leaders in South Florida, where the company is based.
The initiative, dubbed #SAGAFTRAUNIDOS, seeks to end what the union blasted as “double-standard practices in Spanish-language television,” in which NBCUniversal has agreed to SAG-AFTRA contracts for English-language outlets such as NBC and other NBCUniversal properties but not for Telemundo.
