I have no choice but to get involved again to help repair the damage l've seen done to our seniors, the giveaways in the contracts, and the discrimination of our most precious members.”
"How is it that when a member in good standing turns 65 years of age and the need for insurance is most important the residuals don't go towards your insurance qualifications, but you still have to pay dues on your residuals. We need to put people in place that look out for its members." Jay Amor said. "The current leadership of SAG-AFTRA has done FAR more damage to its own members than our employers could have ever done to us. It is time to repair this broken union, and return the power to the members."

“I’ve known Jay Amor personally as a Unionist and Veteran working stuntman with over 40 years experience. He has a passion for righting wrongs and protecting his Union Brothers and Sisters. Atlanta needs an experienced Unionist; who regularly works our current contracts and has the courage to speak out against the giveaway deals our Union has accepted in the past. Vote for Jay Amor for National Board.” — 2023 Secretary-Treasure Candidate Peter Antico
