[UK TV Freelancers] Sweat Shop update

Dear TV Freelancer,

Just passing on a quick response from BECTU to our last mailout about the
'Sweat Shop': we've been asked to draw attention to the fact that
individuals who are not paid at least the National Minimum Wage for their
work can also take a claim to an Employment Tribunal. If they are BECTU
members, the union will help them and give legal advice/representation as
appropriate. But they shouldn't hang about - the claim must be lodged within
3 months of the problem arising. The Sweat Shop is here:

And BECTU is here:

http://www.bectu.org.uk/

Also, since its publication, BECTU members expressed a wish to do some more
work on the Camera ratecard, and it has consequently been temporarily
removed from the union's website.

That's it for now,
