At our January all members’ meeting the following motion was unanimously passed:
Westmorland and Lonsdale CLP request the NEC to support the Musicians’ Union in calling on the Government and Parliament to back a Musicians’ Passport for musicians working in the European Union post-Brexit.
The Musicians’ Passport must:
- Last a minimum of two years
- Be free or cheap
- Cover all EU member states
- Get rid of the need for carnets and other permits
- Cover road crew, technicians and other staff necessary for musicians to do their job
Most musicians and performers rely on touring and performing in the European Union to make a living.
For more information about the MU campaign please see their webpage here and sign the MU petition; you can also write to your MP, and write to the PM, in support of the Musicians’ case.
