Lockout of ACTRA performers by some advertising agencies
For months, some advertising agencies have locked-out ACTRA performers who make commercials. Our performances made award-winning ads that got results—just as we’ve done for more than 60 years under a collective agreement these agencies tried to kill. But we’re fighting back and the agencies are feeling they’ve acted on bad advice.
Available to members of ACTRA, the Directors Guild of Canada and Canadian Actors' Equity Association, HAVEN Helpline is a national, bilingual critical incident reporting line offering counselling and support services.
