BECTU has launched a survey into pay rates for editors working in TV in a bid to better understand terms across the board. The results will inform pay bargaining for editors in the BBC and could also be valuable to the editing community in ITV and in the independent sector. BECTU represents staff and freelances throughout the industry.
The survey, compiled by BECTU national official, Anna Murray, is concise to encourage as much participation as possible.
"We hope that as many people as possible working in TV editing will complete the questionnaire. Whether you work for a broadcaster or facilities house, as an employee or a freelance, whatever sort of editing you do, we'd appreciate a few minutes of your time," said Anna Murray.
"The more wide-ranging and reliable the data we get, the more successful we will be in our efforts to improve terms and conditions for editors."
