Show Support on Social Media by Sharing #StrikeBBH Campaign Posts
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO stands in solidarity with SAG-AFTRA during its strike against ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Inc. (BBH). After nearly twenty years as a signatory, the ad agency is attempting to illegally abandon its obligations under the union contract.
“As the labor movement faces unprecedented assaults, it is more important than ever that workers stand together and hold our ground,” said Charles Wowkanech, President of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO. “All working people deserve fair wages, safe working conditions, access to healthcare, and a meaningful pension. It’s time for BBH to do the right thing and honor their contract.”
SAG-AFTRA members have been instructed not to accept any work for BBH, which the union says “is illegally attempting to abandon its union contract and evade its responsibility to always shoot union commercials, pay fair wages, contribute to performers’ pension and health benefits, guarantee safe sets and commit to the responsible and respectful use of performers’ images, voices and performances.”
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO encourages our members to amplify and express support for this campaign using social media. Please consider following SAG-AFTRA on Twitter, lnstagram, and Facebook, and sharing the #StrikeBBH campaign posts. You can learn more and join in on the action and by visiting the SAG-AFTRA Strike Center online.
Your support will show the advertising industry that the labor community stands as one. So, let’s unite with our brothers and sisters of SAG-AFTRA and bring BBH back to the contract, raising the bar for the entire industry.
