Labor Affiliation

Actors' Equity Association is a member of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The AFL-CIO is the umbrella organization for a federation of unions. It gives voice to legislative and social issues of the American worker.

Equity and its sister performing artist unions, SAG-AFTRA, AGMA and AGVA, are a part of the AFL-CIO. Although autonomous, these sister unions are part of the Associated Actors and Artistes of America, known collectively as the “4As.”

Equity covers actors and stage managers performing in plays, musicals and revues on the legitimate stage; SAG-AFTRA covers film, television, radio and digital media; American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA), covers opera, dance and concert performances; AGVA, the American Guild of Variety Artists, covers nightclubs, arena shows and ice shows. Each union has its own niche and understands the concerns of its members. The 4As supports decisions of its sister unions and offers a collective voice for performing artist labor issues.
