Are UK crews unionised?

Crews in the UK are not unionised on the same scale as they are in some countries. Unions in the UK do not generally set rates of pay for feature film production, however individuals may be a member of a union such as BECTU or Equity.

The Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph and Theatre Union (BECTU) is the union for workers in film, broadcasting and the arts.

Equity represents actors, performers, choreographers, stunt personnel and other individuals working in the entertainment industry.
