Ballot papers will soon be arriving with film construction crew members. The topic is a proposed 2.75% pay increase over eight months rather than 12.

The development follows talks with the feature film producers where another three year deal was discussed initially. However concerns about rising inflation prompted the union side to insist on a shorter timescale. The eight month deal will allow for fresh talks at the end of the period. 

Ballot papers are due to go out on 21 July with the ballot running for two weeks. 

BECTU's national secretary, Spencer MacDonald, who led for the union side supported by reps from all departments, said:

"The union is recommending this offer as the best that can be achieved through negotiations".



BECTU is the UK's media and entertainment trade union; sectors covered include broadcasting, film, independent production, theatre and the arts, IT and telecoms, live events, leisure and digital media.
