  • Annika Connor runs in SAGAFTRA NY Union Elections


    Annika's Art Shop Founder Annika Connor is running in the 2021 SAGAFTRA NY Local Elections. 

    In a statement about why she is running Connor says:
    "I am Annika Connor, one of the other nearly 12,000 SAGAFTRA members who lost their Healthcare at the height of the Pandemic. 

    At the time, I was on disability and in need of additional surgeries to fully recover and be able to walk again pain free.
    I wrote to the Board of Trustees many times to explain that the Pandemic twice shut down surgeries in New York City and my doctors wanted me to wait to be vaccinated before having my third major leg surgery. 
    Not only was this of NO concern to those responsible for mismanaging the Plan’s funds, the SAGAFTRA Board of Trustees completely IGNORED my emails and only responded with an automatic form email. 
    This callous disregard really upset me and my circumstances motivated me to fight for change. 
    I've been a SAGAFTRA Member since 2007 working as an Actor, Stand-In, Background, and Voiceover Artist. I believe a more perfect Union is possible. 
    On a national level, I support Matthew Modine, Joely Fisher, Sharon Stone, and the other Membership First candidates who will take the Union in a better direction for the future. 
    On a New York level, I am running for a NY Local Board seat and a Convention Delegate seat. I will work to protect ALL members, especially the sick and injured. 
    I’m an Idealist. I stand with IDEAL-NY. www.idealny.us"
