About LPD

LPD (London Production Division) consists of more than 12,000 staff, freelance and contract Bectu union members working in the media based in London and South East UK.

Representatives from branches meet together regularly at the LPD Committee.

Each year all LPD members are invited to the LPD Annual Members Forum.
