National Union of Journalists Leeds Branch


Welcome to the NUJ.

The industry has never needed an active and strong union as much as it does now.

The National Union of Journalists is the voice for journalists and journalism.

The NUJ is an inclusive union and represents a broad range of media professionals.

We strive to improve the pay and conditions of our members and protect and promote media freedom, professionalism and ethical standards.

The NUJ is an active union – our members campaign and negotiate to ensure we are properly rewarded for the skilled work we do.

The union is represented in towns and cities all over the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe. NUJ members act together to improve living standards and working lives.

They are represented across the media – as staffers, casuals and freelances in broadcasting, newspapers, magazines, books, public relations, photographers and in new media.

Founded in 1907, the NUJ is one of the biggest journalists' unions in the world.
