NUJ Pay Day October 2015After years of pay freezes in the industry, the NUJ is holding an event to discuss how to negotiate and campaign for better wages and fair working practices for staff and freelances as job titles change and the clickbait culture starts to bite.

This UK event is part of our programme of events for non-Delegate Meeting years and all members are welcome.

We will be showcasing successful pay campaigns and providing practical advice on preparing pay claims and tips on securing a good deal.

The event will publish the result of our confidential pay survey – can you please make sure you complete it.
