Welcome to our summer edition of the FIA e-newsletter. We will start with news from our EuroFIA group, which was welcomed to Hamburg in June by its four German affiliates: GDBA; VdO; BFFS; and ver.di. This regional event also included a one-day meeting between EuroFIA unions and collecting societies representing audiovisual performers.
Next up we have a number of articles about workshops held in Rabat, Bogota and Copenhagen this past spring. I invite you to read these event reports to keep up-to-date with FIA’s recent capacity building work worldwide.
Finally, I will conclude our summer e-newsletter with some exiting news about the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Convention on Violence and Harassment, which was adopted on June 21st. FIA welcomes this new Convention, which, for the first time, provides the unique right globally for everyone to work in an environment free from violence and harassment.
