Dear Colleague,

You may recall that, at our last Exec meeting, I reminded you that the Union was in the process of presenting a complaint to the International Labour Organisation in relation to the Competition Authority ruling and the effect it has had on voice-over actors’ earnings.

You will recall also that we requested a short synopsis from members of your experiences, if any, in this respect.

Our ICTU colleagues are now very anxious to prepare the case and to brief the Union’s legal team etc.

In this context we would ask that, as a matter of urgency, you might forward a brief one or two paragraph outline of how the rates of pay, fees etc. paid to voice-over artists have been affected since the ruling by the Competition Authority.

Please feel free to forward this notice to any other actor who you believe may be in a position to assist with this request.

We look forward to hearing from you.

With thanks and kindest regards,

Des  Courtney
