Statement By Pact and Equity – Stunt Rehearsals

SECOND STATEMENT BY PACT AND EQUITY – STUNT REHEARSALS

There is currently a disagreement between PACT and Equity on the interpretation and application of the PACT/EQUITY TV Agreement 2019 in respect of rehearsals for stunt performers and co-ordinators.

A meeting with the Joint Films Council did not resolve the dispute. Accordingly, PACT and Equity will now proceed to arbitration under clause T32(9), the form of which shall be agreed between the Joint Secretaries in consultation with the affected parties.

In the meantime, where terms cannot be agreed between stunt performers/co-ordinators and producers, filming and rehearsals should continue on the understanding that producers and stunt performers/co-ordinators will agree to be bound by the outcome of the arbitration process.
