Motion no: 6
The omission of creative professionals from the list of self-employed workers benefiting from visa free travel for work purposes in Annex 3 is a huge blow to entertainment workers, the impact of which will be immediate and far reaching.
Equity has already received reports of casting breakdowns for TV and film posted in the UK requiring only EU passport holders to apply. Similarly instances of job adverts for circus and other touring overseas performance work recruiting in the UK making similar demands have been brought to our attention.
Equity calls on the ICTU NI to support our campaign for the inclusion of creative professionals in the list of self-employed workers benefiting from visa travel for work purposes?.
