Union Downsizing

From the L.A. Times.

SAG-AFTRA 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 ...

The merger created the biggest entertainment union in Hollywood, with more than 165,000 members. Combining two separate organizations created some overlapping positions and departments, and the job cuts were deemed necessary in part to eliminate duplicate jobs. ...

It isn't just our fine, entertainment conglomerates making cuts. It goes on lots of other places, too.
