From the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the then newly formed AUC Council, was called upon to take on a huge role, supporting an unsecured industry, with endless pathogens that caused insurmountable problems. 90% of our members were found unemployed and about 30% without access to social benefits (unemployment benefit, minimum guaranteed income, work allowance, pension).
AUC was constantly on alert, creating a mechanism for communicating with all official organizations (THOK, Independent Theatre Producers, TV Networks, Film Producers) as well as with the Cultural Services, the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Labor and Ministry of Health. We thus succeeded in presenting solutions and incorporating measures for the restart of our industry.
Recognition of a professional profile in the national catalogue of occupations and the creation of national professional registers
AUC has been fighting to protect and safeguard our profession through the conclusion of Collective Agreements but also with institutional arrangements that will safeguard the interests of employees.
One of these actions is the passing of a bill entitled, The Actors Law of 2021, which will establish recognition of a professional profile in the national catalogue of occupations and the creation of national professional registers or other adapted means to accord a recognised status to performers as skilled working people.
