Equity New Zealand

Equity New Zealand is a registered trade union representing NZ performers and is the largest creative union in New Zealand.

Thanks to the strength and unity of our members, we have secured recommended contracts and guidelines which now form industry best practice in New Zealand. We continue to improve rights and conditions for performers every day, with a particular focus on the right to collectively bargain in the screen industry.

Equity New Zealand works alongside the Equity New Zealand Board and the Equity Foundation to develop programming that goes to the heart of performers’ needs – skills development, community building, international training opportunities and much more.
