May 5, 2023 – The following is a joint statement from ACTRA and the Association of Canadian Advertisers (ACA):

“ACTRA and the Association of Canadian Advertisers met this week to negotiate a renewal of the National Commercial Agreement. Bargaining will continue next week.”

In the meantime, a delegation of ACTRA members will be taking the boycott of “Union Busting Brands” to the Canadian Labour Congress Convention next week in Montreal. ACTRA will continue promoting the boycott to other labour unions across Canada. Union members are demanding the brands stop using advertising agencies that have locked out ACTRA performers.
