A new agreement covering TV Drama production was introduced on 1 December 2017. BECTU members voted overwhelmingly in favour of the new deal in a ballot in the summer. 

The agreement is the result of extensive talks with the employers, led by PACT, with the direct involvement of BECTU representatives and officials.
