We know this workshop may seem a bit dry but remember: knowledge is power! Come along and engage with your future!
This important workshop will explain how new legislation, the Screen Industry Workers’ Bill, will relate to you, no matter what your role is.
If passed, this legislation which is heading to its second reading, will affect the majority of you.
Most workers in New Zealand’s screen sector are contractors who are not entitled to employment rights, including the right to collectively negotiate terms and conditions of work.
The Screen Industry Workers’ Bill would see contractors allowed to bargain collectively. The proposed changes also include new universal terms that will apply to all contract relationships in the screen industry, and a tiered dispute resolution system which will support parties to resolve issues.
As well as taking a deep dive into what the bill would mean for the screen industry, our panel will outline how the sector became so contract-based, and the differences between being an employee and a contractor.
Keep updated on the bill’s progress here.
