Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) is an American labor union representing approximately 160,000 movie and television actors, journalists, radio personalities, recording artists, singers, voice actors, and other media professionals worldwide.

The organization was formed on March 30, 2012, following the merger of the Screen Actors Guild (created in 1933) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.[6] SAG-AFTRA is a member of the AFL–CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States.[7]
