NUJ 60+ was launched in November 2009 to help the union, union pensions groups and the National Pensioners’ Convention in campaigning on the vital issues that affect the quality of life of NUJ members aged 60 and over.
We know that approximately 6,000 NUJ members are over the age of 60. Some are still working, others are retired from work, but many have told us they want to get active with NUJ 60+.
We are fighting for adequate state pensions and decent occupational pensions and in support of maintaining and improving welfare services that enable older people to play their full role in society with dignity.
NUJ 60+ provides the opportunity for our members to use their vast experience and collective voice in shaping the work of the union.
The NUJ is affiliated at national level to the National Pensioners Convention
and NUJ branches can affiliate to their NPC regional sectors so there is joint work at a local level.
