a sector of Prospect

A number of BECTU branches host meetings where members get together to produce a ratecard for their grades and for specific areas of production (TV drama, factual TV, feature films etc).

Each branch has a right to produce any ratecard that it chooses to, subject to the approval of their division (in this case the London Production division). The rates offered here are the most recent ones to be published by your branch. 

BECTU's production divisions urge every branch to publish a new ratecard each year. If you wish to get involved in this work, and help your branch to establish an updated ratecard, please email or contact your branch official.

Attached is the latest ratecard, published in April 2018, setting out rates for films with budgets £30m and above, under £30m and less than £10m. 

The rates for films with budgets £30m and above should be read in conjunction with the new agreement covering major motion pictures introduced on 2 April 2018.
