A TRADE UNION OF ARTISTS IN THE UK !!!!!!!!!!!
Artists’ Union England is a new trade union for professional visual and applied artists.
We aim to represent artists at strategic decision-making levels and positively influence the role artists play within society.
We aim to challenge the economic inequalities in the art world and to negotiate fair pay and better working conditions for artists.
We aim to work with other unions, arts organisations, government bodies and cultural institutions whilst remaining both independent and transparent.
We aim towards consensus decision-making, an active grass roots membership and involvement over a wide geographical spread.
From 1st May there will be a three-month grace period until 1st August 2014 in which there will be no membership fees. All members who join before 1st July will be invited to take part in a collective decision making process to determine the initial priorities and annual membership fee of the union.
