Equity members working on commercial tours have put together this survey on accommodation, and they're asking Bectu and MU members to fill it in too.

Equity know that the problems with the accommodation system (particularly on tours) have worsened because of the pandemic, and they want to gather as much evidence as we can about the scale of the problem in order to begin making the improvements theatre workers deserve.

The survey will be open until the middle of January, when the results will be shared with Bectu and the MU. Equity will then start putting together a plan of action – but in order for this work to be successful, they need a strong evidence base.

Please fill this in today and encourage other theatre workers to do the same. If you have any comments or questions, please contact Equity’s Theatre Official Charlotte Bence – cbence@equity.org.uk

Take the survey now.
