It's not about being fair - an agent is the only one that can negotiate a Union contract. I self-submit all the time and will put my agent's contact info., as well as my own. Agents represent a lot of clients and don't often submit me for projects that I think I'm right for. It can never hurt to cover your bases. Unless you are a lawyer or have an entertainment attorney on retainer, it's never a good idea to negotiate your own contract.
