Get hired by a Union employer. Once you are working for a signatory studio (an employer who has signed a Union agreement), you will join the Guild and start benefiting from being a part of a Union. The Animation Guild will receive notification of your employment and send you a membership packet (it might take 3 to 4 weeks to arrive), and we will guide you through the membership initiation process. If you’ve been working at a Guild signatory facility for more than 30 days and you haven’t heard from us, email our Member Operations Manager, Leah Semiken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your employer not a part of the union? We can help organize production artists, writers and technicians who have expressed an interest in being part of The Animation Guild. Visit https://animationguild.org/start-a-union/ to learn more.
