JAN 2009 Branch Meeting 13 January 2009Posted by steve1917 in NUJ.
This is a quick note to remind you about the first London Central monthly branch meeting of the year, which takes place tonight, Tuesday Jan 13, at 7pm at NUJ HQ, Headland House in Gray’s Inn Road, just five minutes’ walk from King’s Cross and St Pancras International rail stations.
The meeting, which is on the theme of Chapel Power, will include a discussion about how the branch’s chapels can protect quality journalism and combat job losses and poor pay deals imposed by managements facing pressure from shareholders to protect profits and dividends.
It will be a chance to share news and views about what’s happening in the industry with colleagues at national newspapers, agencies and other media organisations.
The meeting will be a useful preparation for the NUJ’s Jobs Summit, which takes place on Saturday 24th January from 11am – 4pm. The summit is a special one-day event being held to bring together NUJ members to help them take a stand against the redundancies, budget cuts and pay freezes currently being inflicted on our industry.
The conference is free to all NUJ members. To reserve your place, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
So please come along and join us at tonight’s branch meeting, there will be drinks in a local pub afterwards.
