Equity must defend members’ interests | Letter

I write within the title of 140 Fairness business union contributors who give a boost to the letter despatched to the high minister (Stars together with Sir Ian McKellen urge adjustments to visa laws for artists, 16 February). The post-Brexit state of affairs we are facing operating in Europe is disastrous, with a shift from no visa laws around the EU to person Eu states making use of their very own necessities, a lot of which shall be not possible to fulfill.

For instance, filming in Budapest, one of the most primary movie and TV places, now calls for a Hungarian place of abode allow for all paintings. The renegotiation demanded within the letter won’t repair a Europe-wide resolution.

As though issues weren’t unhealthy sufficient, Fairness has a brand new common secretary, Paul Fleming, who actively campaigned for Brexit and does now not give a boost to the unfastened motion of labour.

A quote from Fleming to your article suggests our paintings in Europe is “a cornerstone of our global cushy energy”. It isn’t for a business union chief to signify that we’re international coverage functionaries for the United Kingdom govt, however to protect our pursuits as staff. That is one thing Fleming is obviously incapable of doing, and we haven’t any self assurance in his management.
