WE ARE POST SOUND
BECTU and the Post Production & Facilities Branch are delighted to welcome Post Sound to the union.
On the 31st of July a meeting for Post Production Sound workers convened at a Sound Social event at Jigsaw in Golden Square. Attendance was high with around eighty men and women from a variety of disciplines, both freelance and facility employees, within Post Production.
Paul Evans from BECTU gave a presentation explaining the existing PACT agreements to show what current regulations exist and what other areas of film production have negotiated with the help of the Union.
The groundswell of feeling was for change in the nature of our employment terms and conditions, but it was apparent we have to form a more cohesive community within the Post Sound world and that a united front is paramount to enable change.
Following the meeting a significant number of attendees signed up to the Union joining the already existing members. For the first time in many years there is a genuine opportunity for clarity and unity.
