NUJ democracy: election news
The membership of the NUJ is its lifeblood.
The NUJ is a democratic and campaigning union and strives to represent all sectors of the industry.
We want to encourage members to actively take part in the union and make sure the union reflects the strength and diversity of our membership.
One of the ways that members can get active in the NUJ is to volunteer to stand for election.
There is a variety of NUJ Councils and seats/posts on these Councils (which reflect the industrial sectors, nations and regions of the union) and all the Councils form the basis of the democratic decision-making structures of the NUJ.
There is a range of vacancies. Nomination forms have been sent to your local branch, so if you want to find out more information or volunteer please contact your branch secretary.
Your local branch has to nominate you and the nomination needs to reach Headland House by Friday 27 January 2012.
If you are not sure who your local branch contact is, then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
