NCA – Union Busting Engagers

The Hall of Shame

The Hall of Shame features the biggest names in union busting advertising agencies. Shame on these advertising agencies and their high-profile clients who have locked out ACTRA commercial performers!

You can tell these agencies and their brands exactly how you feel by joining ACTRA’s boycott here:

Engagers that have locked out ACTRA members can easily leave the Hall of Shame by joining the National Commercial Agreement between ACTRA and the ACA at any time by completing a letter of continuance.

There is a wide variety of work that should not be accepted from these agencies, including auditions, callbacks, sessions, commercials pulled from dormancy, etc.
