Our negotiations

On this page you will find information about:

  • MU negotiations and agreements
  • Self-employed (freelance) agreements
  • Employment agreements

The MU negotiates and agrees fees, rates and conditions with all the major UK orchestras, engagers and organisations, as well as setting our own promulgated rates.

We have over 30 individual agreements with different orchestras — from small freelance chamber orchestras to large symphony, opera and ballet orchestras.

We have both Self Employed (Freelance) Agreements and Employment Agreements.
