The ex-officio members of the IEC are the General Secretary, Deputy General Secretary, Irish Secretary and Irish Organiser along with the NEC members for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The IEC also includes a representative of the Retired Members Committee.
Our members include journalists, photographers and creative artists working editorially in newspapers, magazines, books, broadcasting, public relations and information, online/interactive and also advertising and fashion photographers, advertising copywriters and editorial computer systems workers.
The NUJ in Ireland is fully involved in all the NUJ’s ongoing campaigns but also works on issues that are particular to members across Ireland.
The union seeks to defend and promote the professional and financial interests and welfare of its members, to promote the principles and practice of journalism, to defend and promote freedom of the media, speech and information and trade union principles and organisation.
To maximise our impact we need journalists across the Republic and Northern Ireland firstly to join the union and then, once a member, to get actively involved.
All the great things we have achieved over the decades – improving terms and conditions and the health and safety of our members – could not have been done without the hard work of our chapels and branches.
So join the union
, go along to chapel and branch meetings and start to make a real difference to your own working life and that of your colleagues.
