Union Membership: How Tweet It Is


Breaking Bad's R. J. Mitte, CSI: NY's  and KCBS reporter Bob Butler are among a group of AFTRA, Screen Actors Guild and Actors Equity members who will participate in a Labor Day Tweet-a-Thon, a joint project to promote union membership by tweeting about its advantages.

Over the Labor Day weekend, http://www.unionmember.org will feature a round-up of the celebrity tweets and union members who use the #unionmember hashtag.

Others scheduled to extol the virtues of a union card in 140 characters or fewer include Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters and Evan (not to be confused with Eva) Longoria, third baseman for the Tampa Bay Rays.
