Solidarity is fundamental to our strength as a union.
We only make progress if we stick together.
Why would any producer pay UBCP/ACTRA rates if they could get UBCP/ACTRA talent at a fraction of the cost?
Whether Background, Apprentice, or Full member, you have a responsibility to other members to refuse all non-union work. The members believe this so strongly that our constitution and bylaws contain very strict penalties for those who work in non-union productions, including permanent expulsion from the union.
If you have information on non-union production, please contact email@example.com or 604 689-0727 extension 2249.
We will approach the production with the many benefits of working under our contracts.
Help us turn non-union commercials into union production
By reporting any details you have on non-union commercials, you will be helping us in our campaign to reach out to the advertisers and turn those productions into union productions.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 689-0727 extension 2249.
UBCP/ACTRA has agreements for all sizes of production.
If you are asked to perform in a student film or other low budget production, make sure the producer has signed a contract with UBCP/ACTRA.
The Union has established Ultra Low Budget Programs in order to allow Union Members and producers the ability to work together on low-budget productions while protecting the rights of the performers.
