Mission Statement

 MembershipFirst is an organization of SAG-AFTRA performers formed to protect  the rights and interests of every member of our union.

  • We strive to make our union what it was created to be: the most powerful and respected entertainment union in the world.

  • A union that’s run democratically with transparency.

  • We will negotiate the best contracts possible, hire the best staff, and be a powerhouse partner at the bargaining table.

  • A union that effectively responds to all of its members’ needs.

  • A union every member can be proud of and rely on to protect our livelihood.

That’s who we are…that’s who we’ve always been.
Only together can we achieve these goals.
