Canada’s Screen Composers & Directors Alliance
DGC APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP (for SCGC Members)
CANADA’S SCREEN COMPOSERS AND DIRECTORS ALLIANCE
The Directors Guild of Canada and the Screen Composers Guild of Canada (SCGC) are delighted to announce a special alliance aimed at securing collective bargaining for Screen Composers working in the screen based industry in English Canada.
The arrangement, which is the result of a more than one year discussion between the two Guilds, will allow for a new membership category in the Directors Guild of Canada for “Screen Composers”. The Directors Guild expects to open negotiations with the Canadian Media Production Association aimed at securing a basic collective agreement for Screen Composers with Canada’s independent private sector producers.
