ART TECHNICIAN BRANCH

  • Facebook

The Bectu Art Technicians branch is for new and experienced art handlers, art technicians, fabricators and studio assistants seeking guidance, support and protection.

Our aim is to organise and achieve recognition for the value of our work and the importance of our safety at work. We aim to develop a collective body with the ability to influence our industry and to create a better experience of working with galleries, museums, art handling companies and artist's studios.

Being a member of a trade union is completely confidential; your employer will never know you are a member of Bectu unless you tell them.
