PAWE AND TMSA CONTRACT (article first published : 2000-10-21)

Theatre Managements of South Africa (TMSA) and the performing artists workers’ union PAWE have been in negotiation for three years to draft a standard contract of employment fair to both sides. After hard, serious and thorough negotiations, held in a spirit of what is best for the theatre industry, the new PAWE/TMSA theatre contract was signed in August.

Industrial legislation having changed radically during the 90’s, the new contract had to address the reality and practice of theatre in South Africa, focusing on annual issues such as minimum wages and subsistence and touring allowances.

This new contract, while copyrighted by PAWE and TMSA, is available by application to either organisations’ offices. More details from Estelle on (011) 487-1800 (o/h).

For their own financial security, all performers should ensure that they sign contracts (either this one or a similar contract) before they commence rehearsals for any theatre, film or television production.
