Union Chapters Issue Statement on Court's False Endorsement Decision

LOS ANGELES—Members of the actor and crew chapters of the International Entertainment Adult Union (IEAU) issued a joint statement Thursday morning regarding yesterday's decision by a California Superior Court Judge, as reported by the Free Speech Coalition (FSC), that IEAU's apparent endorsement of Proposition 60 in arguments submitted to the Califonia Secretary of State by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) should be stricken from the official voter guide slated to be mailed to all voting households in the state prior to the November 8 general election. The joint statement from the Adult Performer Actors Guild (APAG) and the 424 Local crew chapter follows: The officers and board members of the Adult Performers Actors Guild (APAG) and the 424 Local Crew Union, have been diligently working to remove an untrue statement from AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s rebuttal to [Argument Against] Proposition 60. In this statement signed by IEAU Founder, Phyllisha Anne, support was given to the Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative on behalf of the adult film workers. While IEAU is our founding union, APAG is the guild that represents performers and Local 424 represents the crew workers of the adult industry. Because APAG and 424 Local had not been given the opportunity to vote on a stance regarding the proposition, prior to the signature and filing of the rebuttal, officers and board members of both chapters decided to join the fight against the legitimacy of the rebuttal’s claims. At a hearing held in Sacramento on Wednesday August 10, the Californians Against Worker Harassment Campaign, including Free Speech Coalition and the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, submitted declarations and evidence provided by APAG, to remove IEAU's claim of support. The court ruled that the statement on behalf of workers in the adult film industry was indeed a false endorsement, and would be removed from the rebuttal. This ruling is a huge victory for the adult performers APAG represents. The officers and board members of APAG and Local 424 are proud they could step up and speak out for their fellow adult industry workers, demanding their voice not be ignored. Sean Michaels, President of APAG stated “Lets continue to refocus and work together as the professionals that we are, to see our union agenda through. We will continue to gain ground and grow in a correct and constructive way.” The Officers and Board Members of the Adult Performers Actors Guild are as follows: President- Sean Michaels Vice President-Alana Evans 2nd VP-Melissa Hill Sergeant At Arms- Amber Lynn Secretary- Nicki Hunter Treasurer-Veronica Vaughn Board Members of APAG- Ginger Lynn Jennifer Roubenes Allbaugh Kelly Pierce Kara Lynn Tony Tedesci John Magnum with Bill Margold as Senior Counselor IEAU Appointed Counselor: Jorge Reano   The Officers and Board Members for 424 Local Crew Union are as follows: President-Shelley Bartolini Vice President-Jay Crew Secretary/Treasurer M. Jacobs   Board Members for 424 Local Crew Union Shaun Rivera and Cass Paley.   For more information regarding APAG, including updates about their future website, follow the guild on Twitter.com/APAG_guild For information regarding 424 Local Crew Union visit twitter.com/local_424
