Crack troops: send your unfair contracts now!
Recent NUJ President Tim Dawson updated the June Branch meeting on the campaign to row back publishers' payment-on-publication policy (see the May Freelance).
He has met the new Small Business Commissioner Paul Uppal who was "incredibly keen". "Late payment," Tim reported, "is the single greatest impediment to the economy taking off into the stratosphere and we are the crack troops who will lead the charge" against it.
To take this forward the Freelance appeals for reports of late payments through www.londonfreelance.org/rates/submit and for ypu to send examples of unfair contracts that have been imposed on you to firstname.lastname@example.org
