the media and entertainment union
a sector of Prospect

Thank you for taking the time to respond to our UK Theatres pay survey. 

The BECTU Sector of Prospect is the UK’s trade union for theatre workers and whether you work as staff, freelance, or casual, we're supporting people just like you.

We have collective bargaining agreements with the Society of London Theatre (in London's West End) and with UK Theatres (representing theatres both large and small in the Nations and Regions).

We're also recognised to represent the workforce in our 'national houses' viz the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Royal Shakespeare Company and English National Opera. All of our agreements set out either minimum or precise pay rates as well as other key terms and conditions. 

The union has a team of dedicated, trained reps and officials who negotiate these agreements and who work to protect your terms and conditions.

We also provide quality support and advice on all health and safety matters and access to specialist employment lawyers. Low cost public liability insurance, competitive rates for kit cover and discounts on essential training are also benefits much appreciated by our members. 

If you're not yet a member, we invite you to join.
