Guardian/Observer freelances - get in touch now!
Do you work as a freelance for the Guardian and/or Observer - either as a casual or on contract? If so, we need to hear from you.
The editorial management is looking to slash its budget, and it has proposed doing so at the expense of NUJ members. If we are unable to negotiate an amicable settlement it will not just be staff journalists who pay the price - casuals and freelances will be hit hard too.
That's why we, as chapel officers, want to involve you in the debate. And, if the worst comes to the worst, we would like to include eligible freelances and casuals in any ballot for industrial action.
So, using one of the email addresses below, drop us a line with a few details of your working arrangement with GNM (casual, freelance on retainer contract, occasional freelance etc) and an indication of the percentage of your overall earnings that your income from the Guardian and Observer represents. It would be really helpful if you could include your NUJ membership number as well.
