Stand up for Journalism

The NUJ is standing up for journalism by asking every freelance member to send a letter to your Member of Parliament raising the issue of unfair freelance contracts.

The European Federation of Journalists has declared 5 November a continent-wide Standing Up for Journalism day and this year decided that the theme of the day would be the precarious working conditions and difficulties faced by freelance journalists. So please write soon.

Members should have received a model letter by email from the union. If you are a member and have not had one, please visit to update your email address and request one.

The NUJ is also highlighting the campaign to Fight for our BBC.
