Work with BECTU, the UK’s entertainment industry union, to establish a commission on the counterproductive long hours culture in the UK film and TV industries.
Why is this important?
Long-hours culture in film and tv bad for business, it affects safety and workers’ health and wellbeing.
BECTU is launching a detailed report, based on research among workers in the UK film and TV industry making the case about how the long-hours culture in this industry is damaging productivity and driving valuable skills out of a very important part of the UK economy.
By calling on industry bodies to work with the union and it’s members on this issue, we can build a stronger, healthier entertainment industry together.
“It's become standard practice and this obsessive culture of if you aren't putting in the hours, you aren't working hard enough. It's stupid and reckless and it's killing people. I do not wish for this to be standard practice.”
