If you’re an actor thinking about financial core status within your union …

Fi-Core Central is the best resource for factual information on the hot union topic.

Financial core — also known as “fi-core” — is a United States Supreme Court-backed right to pay a union only for collective bargaining services.

By declaring financial core status within a union, you do not have to obey union rules that exclude you from working non-union.

For an actor, when you “go fi-core,” you are able to work both union and non-union acting jobs.

At Fi-Core Central, we care that you have all the facts about fi-core. We don’t care whether you go union, stay union, or go fi-core. Rather, let the impartial, objective information at Fi-Core Central help you decide what’s right for you.

Our groundbreaking ebook, The Fi-Core Workbook, is designed to help actors decide whether to declare financial core status.

Recently expanded to 3 parts, 26 chapters, and over 100 pages, The Fi-Core Workbook dives deeply into financial core status so that actors may figure out for themselves whether financial core is right for them.

We don’t take sides on whether or not you should go fi-core. Instead, we’ve provided all the factual information we could find about fi-core to help you make the decision for yourself.

Should you decide to go fi-core, The Fi-Core Workbook also provides guidance on what to do afterwards, as well as how to defend yourself.

At Fi-Core Central, we offer private phone consultations, allowing you to ask general questions about financial core status as an actor — or even very specific questions about your unique situation.

Using the popular Clarity.fm platform, you can get impartial, objective answers to your fi-core questions directly over the phone.

Our Fi-Core Q&A Blog answers some of your basic questions about financial core status, and even provides answers to your more complicated questions about fi-core.

Have a question? Send us an email and we may answer it in a future post.

To supplement your reading of The Fi-Core Workbook, we’ve consolidated a lot of the scattered online information about financial core status.

Our Additional Resources section links to some interesting and important webpages for further reading on fi-core.
