What is the representation card?
The Representation Card is a physical manifestation of your desire to have The Animation Guild represent you as your bargaining agent with your employer. Signing and returning the card does not initiate membership with The Guild. It shows your interest in Guild membership and representation. It also acts as a gauge for us to measure how much of the artist pool in a facility share that interest. Once a majority of the artists have returned signed representation cards to us, The Guild will move forward with the next step to signing a contract with your employer.
Will your employer know if I’ve signed a card?
Not a chance. Once we receive your signed card, we file it away not to be seen again until called for by the NLRB. We fiercely guard the identity of card signers, as it is a private decision we appreciate.
Where do I get a card?
