We stand up for journalism
An independent, vibrant, self-critical press is a cornerstone of democracy, and it is currently under attack from all quarters. The NUJ strives to preserve media workers' rights, whether on the newsroom floor or in the field, freelance or salaried, all of whom toil on behalf of the public's right to know and its desire to be informed.
The Union lobbies government and employers in defence of press freedom and acts to protect it when it comes under threat.
A strong and active union is one of the few remaining means that writers, editors, journalists and photgraphers have at our disposal for defending and preserving our livliehoods from the ravages of neo-liberalism. If these issues are of concern to you, please join us in the struggle for a better future.
