About NUJ Wales

The NUJ represents workers across all areas of the media industry in Wales including the BBC and ITV, local radio, newspapers, magazines, books and PR.

We represent a large number of freelance journalists and photographers, and those working in community journalism and hyperlocal hubs.

Members in Wales are organised in geographic branches that include Cardiff and South East Wales, Swansea, Shropshire and North Wales Coast.

There is also a specialist branch for staff at the BBC.

Each branch elects representatives to sit on the NUJ Welsh executive council, along with elected representatives from all industrial sectors of the NUJ.

The council meets to plan the work of the NUJ in Wales - recruitment, campaigning, political lobbying, training and other issues.

The interests of NUJ members in Wales are also represented by an elected member (or job share) to the national executive council.

If you are an NUJ member facing any issue at work, or you simply want to find out more about getting involved and active in the NUJ in Wales speak to a local NUJ representative.

Trades councils

Trades union councils and county associations are an important part of the labour movement, bringing together activists at a grassroots level and representing the trade union movement to the broader community. The NUJ encourages all brances to affiliate to their local trades union council.

The 2013 directory of trades union councils and county associations lists all 159 registered trades union councils and 26 county associations in England and Wales, by order of the region.
