Event Details

What BECTU does next in VFX is your decision.

In October - November 2017, BECTU organised a ground-breaking campaign called vfxAssemble modelled on the 'crowdfunding' model to grow the union.

This meeting will include a presentation on the outcome of a survey of 100s of VFX workers on what we did right - and wrong - in the vfxAssemble campaign.

This was the first campaign of it's kind in the UK. From the union's point of view, it was a huge success in that it has grown membership of BECTU very significantly. It has also vastly increased awareness and understanding of the union's role within the industry.

However, the union didn't succeed in it's stated objective of recruiting 50%+1 of the workers in any London VFX company, and this campaign has taught the union that this aim was 'too steep a hill to climb' in one month.

We learned an enormous amount from this campaign and we want to share this knowledge with you.

This meeting will allow all members to jointly decide what BECTU does next in VFX.

BECTU is a democratic union, it is directed by its members. All members will be involved in deciding what happens next and the meeting will be shown the results of an ongoing survey (still open - here) followed by a discussion on the future of the union's strategy in this sector. 

The meeting will be followed by the Branch Annual General Meeting (AGM) at which the officers for 2018 will be elected.

Book your ticket to this event now. This meeting is open to BECTU members only.

Non-members may join on the night of the meeting or join online now - here.
