Equity committee elections are now open.
You are able to vote online or by post. Enclosed with the latest magazine, which will be arriving on doorsteps over the next few days, you will find a booklet of election statements from the candidates, a ballot paper and a prepaid envelope to send your votes back to us.
To vote online you will need the unique code printed on your ballot paper, and which has also been sent out via email. When you’ve got that head to equity.org.uk/elections and follow the instructions. You will be able to find an online version of the candidates’ election statements on the voting page.
Some candidates have also supplied additional video statements, which you can find on our dedicated elections Youtube channel here
We have three industrial committees — Screen & New Media, Stage and Variety, Circus and Entertainers — with the authority to conduct negotiations. These committees, made up of members with recent experience of relevant work, are at the forefront of improving pay and conditions for members. Supporting them are five specialist committees — Audio, Dance, Singers, Stage Management and Directors & Designers — all made up of members with recent working experience. There are also committees of members in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, four equality committees — Deaf and Disabled; LGBT+; Minority Ethnic; and Women — and a Young Members’ Committee.
Voting closes at noon on 12 July.
