AFTRA Board Recommends Raising Initiation Fee

The National Board announced today [August 5] that it has overwhelmingly voted to recommend that delegates to the AFTRA Convention approve a $300 increase in the initiation fee that applicants to membership in AFTRA pay upon joining. The recommendation states that all additional revenues raised as a result of the fee increase would be exclusively earmarked for organizing to increase employment opportunities for union performers and broadcasters so they can benefit from the improved wages and working conditions of AFTRA contracts. The proposed increase-which was recommended to the Board by both the AFTRA Strategy Cabinet and the Finance Committee-would raise the standard initiation fee to $1,600 from $1,300. If approved by Convention delegates, it would go into effect on November 1, 2009. The last time AFTRA increased its initiation fee was in 2003. Annual membership dues remain unchanged
