BECTU publish new freelance sound rates

The new guidelines are the result of consultation with BECTU members and have the backing of 97% of members who took part.

The guidance rates are effective now and are for sound professionals based in the UK. The information gives rates including and excluding holiday pay.

National Official Tony Norton said: “With the publication and circulation of the new rates we have reached a milestone. These new rates will help to ensure that sound professional are better rewarded for the work they do after a period of some eight or nine years, where rates have been driven down due to new technology.”
