I recently joined a union where I agreed not to appear in recordings where the producer does not have a contract with the union. The information regarding union rules is spread out over several documents and not well categorized.
I spoke to an information officer and found out by "recordings" they mean any type of video recording regardless of length or sound.
I'm part of a fitness group and the other day someone was making a video with his phone to put on the Facebook page, and asked if I enjoyed the workouts. I would like to know if this would have been a violation of the union agreement? How can I find the answer to this question and not sound like I'm arguing or trying to get around the rules?
Of course it's the information officer's job to explain the rules as generally as possible to protect the union. But I seriously need to know where the boundaries are especially considering it's legal to record someone without their consent in public.
