End the ACTRA Lockout

Throughout almost a year of negotiations to renew the NCA (collective agreement known as the National Commercial Agreement), the ICA (Institute of Canadian Agencies) and a group of large Canadian advertising agencies have tried to gut ACTRA’s (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) collective agreement by cutting the pay, health benefits and retirement contributions, and workplace protections for ACTRA’s members and looking for ways to go non-union for their commercials. After imposing a lockout deadline of April 26, 2022, the ICA declared the agreement expired and unlawfully locked out ACTRA’s 28,000 members from the workplace.

ACTRA has launched a public email campaign to demand the ICA end the lockout. Click here to view the campaign and add your name.
