We understand that some signatories to the Commercials Contracts received an information request from the Union.   The JPC has discussed the request with the Union.  It is our understanding that these requests are being sent to entities that are neither advertisers nor advertising agencies, and that the Union is looking to clarify what role such signatories play with respect to the employment of Union members.  Under the letters of adherence executed by direct signatories, the Union has the right to reject or revoke the signatory status of any company if it determines that such company is not a bona fide producer of commercials.  Direct signatories should contact their legal counsel with any questions.
