MU Sections

About the Sections (show)

The MU’s Executive Committee (EC) recognises the variety of work and complexity of the music profession and has established a number of Sections that can be called upon to inform the EC on issues affecting the way in which members work.

During 2012/13, a review of the Sections was conducted and the EC has decided to move to a more industry based Sections structure. The new structure will be implemented during 2014 and is detailed below.

The Sections are directly related to either the departments run by National Organisers or specific and unique areas of work. Where necessary, the Sections may choose to elect sub-committees to deal with individual types of employment covered by the overall remit of the Section.

Within a Section, it may be necessary to establish registers of members who work predominantly under the terms and conditions governed by one or more of the Union’s collective bargaining agreements (CBA), in order to facilitate accurate balloting of the appropriate members in respect of the renegotiation of the CBA.

Each Section has a democratically elected Committee that meets as required by the EC in order to discuss stakeholder issues and, where necessary, make recommendations to the EC. Membership of any of the Sections is by application to your Regional Office or the Secretary to the Section Committee, and is open to any member who earns all or part of their living from the area of work that the Section covers.

EQUALITIES COMMITTEE

Every MU member deserves equal opportunities, the same rights to good service, fair representation, respect and dignity while they are working, and access to Union support and assistance.

On behalf of its members, the MU continues to lobby on a diverse range of equalities issues, which have included keeping the streets safe for musicians at night, mental health prejudice and the barriers to accessible travel faced by disabled freelance workers. Should you wish to be kept informed of the activities of the Equalities Committee, or get involved in its work, please apply to the Equalities Official.
