2014-15 was a year of transition for our umbrella union as the 4As gave way to The Department for Professional Employees, AFL–CIO (DPE). This is a semi-autonomous "trade" department of the AFL-CIO, and serves as an advocate for professional workers within the federation, and before legislative bodies, the press and the public. See http://dpeaflcio.org/
It is good to see many join other unions or at least have the option to do so. Thanks for the attendance at our meetings and support from afar to those who could not attend.We have continued to provide a safe place for actors and writers to work on new projects and give our members chances to make new connections.
The web page is changing over due to technology. The address will still be giaa.us. The site will look slightly different.
Our dues remain the same as last year: $60 or $40 for seniors 62+ who joined before 2007. Preference is PayPal payment which also takes credit cards to firstname.lastname@example.org If you pay by check send to
GIAA PO Box 123; Canal St. Station, New York, NY 10013
Thank you, mille grazie, for your continued support.
Carlo Fiorletta, President
