Vremea freelancerilor

July 28, 2009

freelancerJurnalistii freelanceri vor avea si drepturi legale, si o recunoastere a statutului. Printre primele – plata concediului de odihna, la fel ca in cazul celor ce profeseaza sub umbrela unei institutii media, traininguri profesionale si, nu in ultimul rand, stabilirea unui tarif minim pentru materialele furnizate pe baza contractelor de drepturi de autor.

O serie de pasi au fost deja facuti de institutiile media internationale. Uniunea Nationala a Jurnalistilor din Marea Britanie (NUJ) a cerut parlamentarilor declansarea unei initiative legislative in acest sens. In numai cateva zile, 14 deputati si-au dat avizul favorabil.

Petitia initiata de NUJ, Early Day Motion, vizeaza exclusiv ziaristii care si-au pierdut joburile fara compensatii financiare, de la declansarea actualei recesiuni. Aceasta a fost inaintata deja Parlamentului britanic, iar Uniunea a declansat o campanie de sprijin in favoarea adoptarii sale, cerand prietenilor si familiilor celor in cauza sa solicite direct sprijinul deputatilor din circumscriptia de care apartin.

Daca proiectul NUJ va fi sustinut de suficienti parlamentari, ar putea determina Guvernul sa initieze un draft de lege in sprijinul freelancerilor de criza.

Potrivit siteului journalism.co.uk, pentru a atrage atentia asupra acestei noi categorii sociale, Uniunea a declarat iulie drept Luna freelancerilor.

Jurnalistii britanici s-au mai mobilizat odata pentru a-si apara drepturile. Conform unui raport al All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Freelance Sector, si Uniunea producatorilor TV, BECTU, a solicitat adoptarea unor masuri sociale pentru jurnalistii liber-profesionisti.

Pe cand asemenea initiative si in Romania? Mai ales ca nu ducem lipsa nici de asociatii profesionale, nici de parlamentari, iar numarul freelancerilor de la noi il depaseste precis pe cel al britanicilor.

Early Day Motion/ FREELANCE RIGHTS/ 21.07.2009

Mitchell, Austin

That this House notes that freelance workers have been hit hard by the economic downturn and are losing significant amounts of regular work with little or no warning and without any redundancy pay or compensation; further notes that many freelance workers have little choice but to take up self-employment because of employment practices in their sector; further notes that at present freelance workers are entitled to pro rata holiday pay for the periods that they work; believes that a similar system could be applied to other employment rights, such as redundancy pay; therefore calls for improved rights across all sectors in which regular freelance work occurs.

    Am impresia ca jurnalistul freelancer este un fel de blogger ale carui articole sunt preluate contra/cost de presa. Corect?

      kingquizz – in mare da, conceptul e foarte apropiat de realitate. Doar ca sunt preluate for free, si – ce e mai deranjant, adesea fara citarea sursei. In general, in acceptiunea internationala (care incepe sa prinda teren si la noi), freelancerul e un jurnalist care lucreaza pe baza de contracte/proiecte specifice, fara drepturile/protectia legala de rigoare (clasicele contracte DDA sau prestari servicii, sau altele similare).
