Following the postponement of the NUJ Delegate Meeting following the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdown, an online conference will now take place in May alongside a programme of broader events taking place across the union’s nations and regions.
DM will take place online, with the main business and motions happening on Friday 21 May and Saturday 22 May, following a formal opening of proceedings on Monday 17 May that will include events focussing on the union’s News Recovery Plan, our safety of journalists campaign, the union’s international solidarity work and a celebration of our Members of Honour.
We will showcase a package of training seminars and professional skills sessions, including collective bargaining and mental health and wellbeing training. Branches will also be encouraged to organise online events during a week of activity to make the role of journalists and journalism.
Branches will be able to amend their delegations.
Late Notice Motions will operate in the usual way, with a deadline for receipt to the NUJ Standing Orders Committee of noon, Friday 14 May.
