The Canadian Media Guild and BECTU are joining forces to highlight the problems with working conditions in the non-fiction TV sector. The unions are delivering principles aimed at improving the situation to production and broadcast executives attending an industry conference (Realscreen), taking place in London. Workers in both countries have reported similar concerns about excessive and unreasonable working hours, unpaid time, inadequate rest time and poor health & safety management in non-fiction/factual production. The principles the unions are presenting, supported by the Writers Guild of America East, are modelled on the Code of Practice that BECTU developed in 2013 to improve working conditions for factual workers.
