Bectu Theatre Freelance Branch push for gender equity

Building on a strong piece in The Stage [£] from earlier this year by Catherine Kodicek, she has another article in this week that gives good coverage for the new Bectu Theatre Freelancers Branch talking about gender equity.

“BECTU does listen to the costume community, and we’ve seen some of the good the union can do when it has committed members willing to work together. I cheered when English National Opera and the union came to a landmark pay equity deal that saw the costume team’s pay increase significantly to bring them in line with other technical workers doing jobs of equal value.

That agreement was possible because all genders worked together in the spirit of fairness.”
