Write to your MP on late payments

THE NUJ asks you to write to your MP about UK implementation of the recent EU Directive on late payments. This enforces payment within 30 days, but crucially allows this to be "extended by contract" to 60 days, which effectively means our clients can still coerce us into agreeing to wait two months for payment. Please let the template below inspire your letter, remembering that a number of letters whose authors have clearly expressed their own thoughts creates more of an impression than yet another cut-and-paste.

The draft letter is available to NUJ members by logging in to - see this link.
