The rates are valid from 1st January – 31st December 2023
9 hours based upon a 9 hour stipulated period inc meal break (which is unpaid), between 7am and 10pm (before 7am additional payments apply). After 10pm night-time overtime will apply, unless called as a night shoot.)
CONTINUOUS WORKING DAY
A 7-hour workday/night. The SAs do not have a lunch break; instead, production provides them with a rolling buffet between takes. Since there is no lunch break, overtime is payable after 7 hours.
A 4-hour call without a break. There is a 15-minute grace period during which the SA is entitled to receive a half-hour overtime payment. In the event that the shoot runs over this, the shoot then moves into a second shift call.
