Screen Actors Guild To End ‘High-Risk’ Private Meetings In Hotel Rooms

In light of Hollywood’s ongoing sexual assault scandal, the Screen Actors Guild is fighting to put an end to meetings in “high-risk locations.”

SAG-AFTRA, the labour union for actors, has released a guideline for producers and movie executives asking them not to set up meetings in hotel rooms or other private locations.

“We are committed to addressing the scenario that has allowed predators to exploit performers behind closed doors under the guise of a professional meeting,” said Gabrielle Carteris, SAG-AFTRA president.

This movement is a new initiative by the union with hopes it can end harassment and assault in the industry.

“All professionals, including SAG-AFTRA members, are expected to refrain from engaging in harassing conduct and support efforts to eliminate this scourge from the workplace,” the union continued.

This move follows a string of sexual assault allegations against many members of the entertainment industry, including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

In February, a detailed code of conduct was also released.
