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.
