The annual meeting of the Birmingham and Coventry NUJ branch was held in The Old Windmill pub on Thursday 23rd February. Our guest speaker was our new Deputy General Secretary Barry Fitzpatrick.
Barry spoke about the challenges facing the union in the future including the need to recruit and organise new members. Barry highlighted the need to recruit the growing army of freelance workers including those working in new media.
The meeting agreed to look further at recruitment and will be organising a working party to consider how best this can be done.
