The Federation of Entertainment Unions (FEU) has launched the Creating without Conflict campaign to challenge bullying and harassment in the entertainment industries. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness, to work with employers to create effective policies and procedures that will protect staff and freelance workers from bullying and harassment and empower members to challenge and report incidents without fear of reprisals.

This Conference will explore the results of our recent survey which asked members about their experience of bullying and harassment in their industry, the aim of this research was to see how widespread the problem is throughout the entertainment industry. The afternoon will then consist of discussion groups, which will give members the opportunity to discuss in more detail the issues that has risen from the survey.

The conference is for members of the following unions: BECTU, Equity, Musicians’ Union, National Union of Journalists and the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. The conference is free and lunch is provided.
