Coronation Street behind-the -scenes staff have walked out today after they got fed up with ‘terrible’ working conditions.
Broken kit, working long hours with no extra pay, annual leave cancelled are just some of the things what the staff are not happy about.
A insider has told The Sun:
“Corrie bosses are facing a mutiny if nothing is done to change what’s happening behind the scenes.
“They’re short staffed and overworked and the crew have had enough. It’s been made worse since they started filming six episodes a week.
“And now, in the run up to Christmas, they’re having to work even harder to make sure everyone can have their two week break over the festive period.
They’ve kept quiet for so long, now they’re ready to make their voices heard.”
Another source has said that it’s the sound guys who have it worse as it read:
“The sound guys get the worst deal – they’ve got old kit and every boom microphone seems to be broken.
“They pay the cast millions every year, but seem to forget they wouldn’t have a show if it wasn’t for the crew working behind the scenes.”
