Our task is to represent the complex and different needs of our members in negotiations with these unions. For more information about individual agreements, click on the icons below. This latest updated agreement entered into force in April 2017 (Updated January 2019) We are responsible for negotiating and implementing a series of collective agreements with Equity, BECTU and The Musicians` Union. These agreements define the minimum payment and conditions applicable to the entire sector for the engagement of actors, stage management, creatives, technicians and musicians. The agreement between UK Theatre and Bectu applies to most commercial and subsidised theatres outside London. The union has a number of agreements with ITV licensing companies. In addition, a new national agreement – the Joint National Trade Union Committee – was signed in January 2010. The agreement provides for formal negotiations at national level on remuneration and a number of other business-to-business issues. The structure of the Joint Industry Special Effects Grading Scheme is also used by employers (production companies, producers, etc.) to ensure that they employ experienced, qualified and responsible people.
This system helps to ensure that productions are or become low-risk projects, both from a completion point of view and from a health and safety point of view.
