About the NUJ

If you are a journalist in Britain or Ireland – or a journalist from those countries working overseas – the NUJ is the only union to protect your interests.

The NUJ is among the biggest and best-established journalists’ unions in the world, with 35,000 members – 2,300 of whom are photographers – and has fought to defend their their pay and conditions, their working rights and their professional freedom ever since.

The NUJ has held on to these values through war and peace, boom times and recessions. Despite the attacks in the UK on trade unions and independent journalism, despite the supposed fall in public appreciation of our members’ work, we are thriving.

The NUJ’s membership has been rising steadily for the last four years. We’re the union of the past, present and future.
