Vacancies on NUJ Industrial Councils
THERE ARE vacancies on the NUJ's Freelance Industrial Council - the elected body that helps formulate and carry out the Union's policies. Most seats on these Councils are reserved for a particular demographic or geographical area. For more on the work of the Industrial Councils, see here.
Candidates will need to seek nomination from an NUJ Branch (not necessarily their own) in plenty of time for that Branch to send in nomination papers by post to the NUJ's Headland House HQ - to arrive by 27 February. If you're seeking the nomination of LFB, please contact the Branch Secretary - doing so before or during the LFB meeting on Monday 13 February would be even better.
Demographic groups are self-defining, but you need to make sure that the NUJ's Membership Department have you recorded as belonging to that group (and also being a freelance as well). See here for advice on how to ensure this.
