SAG-AFTRA announces plan to cut 60 jobs

SAG-AFTRA, the union representing Hollywood actors and other performers, said Sunday it is eliminating 60 positions from the organization as part of plan to balance its budget.

The layoffs, about 10% of the jobs at the union, represent the second wave of layoffs that have occurred at SAG-AFTRA since the two unions voted to merge a year ago in an effort to gain more leverage in contract negotiations. SAG-AFTRA cut about 80 jobs last fall.
