SAG stands for Screen Actors Guild, while AFTRA stands for American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. The main purpose of both unions is to better the wages and working conditions of their members. They negotiate the terms of contracts, length of working days, turnaround time, required school hours for minors, percentages that producers must pay into Union pension and health insurance benefits, etc. The union guarantees that payment will be made and acts on the performer's behalf when terms of the contract are breached. Neither union is an employment or placement agency. These are the two most popular unions, for information on joining SAG or AFTRA, or other unions, see below.
