In the light of concerns about work with no pay/low pay, please take heed of page 34 of the latest Equity magazine, which lists names, agencies and/or companies which have owed or still owe members money. Members are advised to consult the Equity office before accepting engagements through or with any of the names on the list (It is too long to put here!)
