The union wants to promote fair representation of NUJ members on its councils and committees, so we encourage young members, black members, disabled members and women members to stand for vacancies.
The NUJ has a range of councils and committees that form the basis of the NUJ's democratic decision-making structures. Membership of these bodies is open to members – depending on their sector or membership category.
There are a number of ways to get elected to these democratic bodies – some elections take place at the delegate meeting, others are based on branch nominations and are elected by a ballot of the relevant members (where there is more than one candidate). Where there is only a single candidate, or two candidates choose to job-share, they are deemed elected without a ballot.
Latest information on NUJ elections:
There are currently no vacancies on NUJ councils that are open to nominations. Details will be added to this page once the vacancies are reopened and advertised to branches.
