Associated Actors and Artistes of America
Affiliation AFL-CIO
Key people Theodore Bikel, President

The Associated Actors and Artistes of America (4As) is the federation of trade unions for performing artists in the United States. The following unions belong to the 4As:

The organization holds a unique role because the 4As is a member of the AFL-CIO but the individual unions are not. This distinction is purely technical as the 4As splits its votes in AFL-CIO elections based on the wishes of each member union. The well-known performer and civil rights activist, Theodore Bikel, is President of the 4As.

The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) was a member until 2008, when it decided to become a direct affiliate of the AFL-CIO because of jurisdictional disagreements with SAG.
