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 and a few of 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 current AAAA member unions of the AFL-CIO are: AEA, AGMA, and SAG-AFTRA. The well-known performer and civil rights activist, Theodore Bikel, is President of the 4As.
