Equity has launched a small scale tours survey as part of the union's Professionally Made Professionally Paid campaign. Members are asked to spare a few minutes to fill it in and share their insight.
The campaign has been successfully challenging unpaid work in the entertainment industry since its launch in 2014. Professionally Made Professionally Paid has made a significant impact in fringe theatre, where it has brought more than £3 million in wages into the sector.
This year members have identified small scale tours as a priority area. Stage Management Councillor Adam Burns said, "Small scale tours have been hot beds of exploitation for Equity members for too long. Issues such as excessive driving hours, non-payment of the National Minimum Wage and serious health and safety breaches are all too common."
