Becoming a Member at a Guild Shop
If you work at a nonfiction production company that has unionized with the WGA East but are not yet a Guild member, contact Andrew Greenberg at email@example.com for the membership forms.
Flex Plan Forms
Many Guild Nonfiction shops participate in a portable health care plan known as the Entertainment Industry Flex Plan.
Under the Flex Plan, anyone working at a union shop—including people who are currently opting out of insurance—would receive a employer contribution for health care which could be used by the employee in a variety of ways.
The contribution could be used to purchase primary insurance through the Flex Plan; to purchase supplemental (e.g., dental, vision, disability) insurance if you already have primary insurance; or it could be used to pay for other eligible expenses, such as a spouse’s group plan.
