Can you Hire Non-Union Actors in Speaking Roles in an SAG Ultra Low Budget Film

Can you Hire Non-Union Actors in Speaking Roles in an SAG Ultra Low Budget Film without having to Taft Hartley them. (I read online Taft Hartley was not available to SAG Ultra Low Budget Films.)

I believe I found... In a round about way... The Answer:
Yes, you can hire anyone in a SAG Ultra Low Budget Film. No, you can't Taft Hartley (but it isn't needed) in a SAG Ultra Low Budget Film.

I've done both -
I've hired non-SAG Aftra actors for a SAG ultra-low budget movie.
And if you go to the next higher level, I've gone the Taft-Hartley route.
