The Freelance Office - vale John Toner

AFTER over 16 years fighting on behalf of freelances as the NUJ's Freelance Officer and then its Senior Freelance Officer, John Toner moves to the NUJ's Glasgow Office where he takes up the post of NUJ's Scottish Organiser. As part of his new role, John - who has been a familiar face at LFB meetings - will continue to work on behalf of NUJ freelances in Scotland.

The Freelance thanks John for all his hard work for the Union's freelances over the years. Coverage of rousing speeches by John at LFB's own event on precarious work - as well as "Unpaid work... the curse of the freelance classes" from the 2014 NUJ Delegate Meeting - are linked below.

Freelance NUJ members with enquiries or in need of support from the union should contact Freelance Organiser (and Wales Organiser) Pamela Morton at the Freelance Office - Pamela also attends LFB meetings to deal with members' queries. To contact other NUJ officials, see
