MembershipFirst's 2017 Candidates



Esai Morales National President 

Serving on the national board for 17 years has taught me well. I’ll lead our union to be transparent, inclusive and accountable. I’ll be a unifying force to preside over a divergent boardroom. Welcoming open and honest dialogue, we'll gauge our union and chart our course. Will fight boldly and judiciously protect our standard of living including residuals, pension and health plans — especially our vulnerable members. Cross party lines to eliminate waste and inefficiency placing membership service above partisan politics. #peacefulwarrior with an artist's heart and four decades of good will in this industry. Responsible proactive leadership. MembershipFirst


Jane Austin  National Secretary Treasurer

It's been an honor to serve you as Secretary / Treasurer. My approach is simple. Recognize the problems and fix them. As an experienced business woman I know how to run a productive, responsive and cost efficient union. Since my election, we have seen a surplus in the millions in our finances. We now have departments back for Background, Singers, Dancers, Stunts, Voice Over and Sound Recordings. We have negotiated excellent contracts for our Broadcasters. There is more to do. We must find a solution for our split earnings between SAG and AFTRA's pension plans to finally merge them. MembershipFirst
