The Guild board voted to support the Film and Television Action Committee (FTAC) and its effort to curtail runaway production by allocating $50,000 to the Stewart & Stewart law firm and its initial filing of a 301(a) petition regarding Canada that the board originally supported a year ago. The motion passed at the October 2005 national board meeting read:
"That the National Board support the Film and Television Action Committee (FTAC) and its 301(a) petition by adding Screen Actors Guild to the list of names of unions and cities who have already given their support of both FTAC and its 301(a) petition, which asks that the U.S. trade representatives investigate the Canadian subsidies for a possible violation of the trade agreements Canada already signed with the U.S."
Rosenberg and Stevens said: “Over the years, Screen Actors Guild has fought runaway production by creating federal and state tax incentives throughout the United States. By supporting a 301(a) filing, the Guild is taking yet another step towards keeping actors’ jobs here in the United States.”
