CMG launches salary survey for factual TV workers

The Canadian Media Guild has launched a new salary survey for people who work in factual TV production.

Modelled on a similar survey launched earlier this year in the U.S., the CMG’s survey invites people who work in production, post-production, and operations and administration in the factual TV industry to anonymously share details about their salaries.

The idea of the CMG’s survey is to give workers better leverage in contract negotiations and to encourage pay transparency and pay equity. Wage transparency is thought to be one of the solutions to the gender pay gap. The CMG has previously published two salary surveys of the factual TV industry in Canada.

You can read more about the U.S. pay survey in the Hollywood Reporter. And if you work in factual TV here in Canada you can find a link to the survey on the CMG’s new survey page. Please pass the link along to colleagues and anyone you know who works in the factual TV industry.
