We are pleased to announce that the 2019-2024 collective agreement between the Canadian Media Guild and CBC/Radio-Canada is now available online in English and French. Once the printing process is complete, the hardcopys of the agreement will be sent in both languages to all sites. Each time you enter into a freelance contract with CBC under the CMG/CBC collective agreement, you pay 1.55% of your gross payment in union fees. This means that you have the right to become a member of the Canadian Media Guild Freelance Bran and that you are protected by certain sections of the collective agreement. The Canadian Freelance Guild does not represent CBC freelancers, and there are some benefits that CFG cannot currently extend to CBC freelancers. You may be a member of both unions, but if you are executing professional contracts for the CBC, we advise you to “claim your membership.” Go to this website to do it. If the form appears in the drop-down menu for employers, select Freelance – CBC/Radio-Canada. For more than 20 years, CMG has represented the professional professions that bring their work and talents to CBC/Radio-Canada, in accordance with section 30 of the long-standing collective agreement between CMG and public broadcasting. This inclusion of the self-employed in an employee-related employment contract is an anomaly in Canadian labour law and an exceptional case for a union.
