Please join BECTU on Wednesday 1st of April for The Rough Assembly’s COVID-19 Big Gathering from 7.30pm onwards. Register here.
BECTU and the Post Production and Facilities branch committee welcome the recent financial package for the self-employed outlined by the Chancellor, but it doesn’t go far enough, and has left many members with very little or no support at all.
Fine print, further measures and an earlier implementation date is desperately needed with immediate effect, and we continue to lobby the government on members/crew’s behalf in attaining these details and date movements. In the meantime, we are in a position to give you support and insight into the following topics:
– What does the self-employed package mean and what does it currently entail?
– What help is available to me based on my employment/engagement status?
– What are BECTU doing to help me?
– What industry support is available to me?
– What will happen to Britain’s Film & TV Industry?
