While we await the final full text of the proposed agreement with PACT on £30m+ films, the camera branch has produced notes on the main points. For those working in TV Drama, we also have notes on that agreement so you will know what to expect as it comes into force at the end of the year. The notes and the full agreement are available via our agreements section.
Following discussions at the AGM, it was proposed to have a meeting focusing on the branch rate card. We will be promoting the survey and examining other industry sources of data to improve our data set and how best present the information to members. The meeting is also open to interested non-members. We have booked a room for the 12th of July. It’s Old Mary’s Cocktail bar at The Mitre, 24 Craven Terrace, Lancaster Gate, London, W2 3QH (note this is a venue change). We have booked from 7.30pm to start the meeting proper at 8pm.
Following an overwhelming endorsement from BECTU freelance members, the union has signed off on the first sector agreement covering crew in TV drama since 2003. Read more here.
