IATSE Statement on the Passing of SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard

Jewish Labor Committee Honors Loeb

We are deeply saddened at the news of SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard’s passing yesterday. 

Ken was a leader during the difficult and important merger of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and he led with a vision of stability for the union members.

“Ken Howard was a strong leader, and this is an incredible loss to his family, SAG-AFTRA members and the industry as a whole,” said IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb. “We support our sister union during this difficult time.”
