uktvfreelancers: UK TV Freelancers Mailing List

Many freelance professionals in the UK TV industry work in isolation, unaware of industry standard rates and practices, and alone when it comes to negotiating fairer contracts and rates or responding to abuses of their rights. In the early 2000's, a number of freelance professionals in the UK TV industry formed an online community where some of the difficult issues facing freelancers could be raised, discussed and addressed - increasing the bargaining power of individuals and removing some of the isolation in which they worked. The UK TV Freelancers website was born, and later its members contributed to the TV WRAP campaign which raised awareness of illegal employment practices in the sector. The community continues today at http://www.tvfreelancers.org.uk and this is our mailing list.
