From The Guardian ...

It affects ATG theatres. Looks like they haven't balloted staff on action yet so no immediate plans, but worth keeping an eye on the situation.

Oh dear. Plenty of people wanting jobs if they don't like the pay.

I'm on minimum wage and am just glad to be employed.

I applaud the fact they are prepared to stick up for themselves - good luck to them.

Good to see Bectu doing something for theatre people. It is such a vast union that rarely anything gets done.

Why would it just be ATG theatres? Do others have non union staff?

The dispute is specifically between ATG and their staff

Bit more from the stage, one of the complaints is moving from weekly to monthly pay. Am amazed that anyone still operates weekly pay, other than temping agencies.

Would gladly pay ATG's exorbitant booking and transaction fees if I thought they were paying their staff a decent wage. Put my support down for the lefty's

that is the one thing i did think, considering how much of a rip off atg can be they should be able to pay their staff more.
