Public and Commercial Services union NUJ chapel
This motion was passed unanimously by members attending the Public and Commercial Services union NUJ chapel today:
“This chapel calls for the suspension of the measures in the ‘recovery plan’ agreed by the NUJ national executive so there can be open internal and external consultations, and the opportunity to put forward alternative proposals.
“This chapel is opposed to any compulsory redundancies of NUJ employees.”
NUJ Book Branch
The following motion was passed by NUJ Book Branch last week.
“This Branch is extremely concerned by the current financial difficulties facing our union and extends solidarity to all NUJ members, staff and officials.
“This Branch believes that consultation on a rescue plan has been inadequate and undermines the NUJ’s commitment to democracy and fairness, and that NUJ members and staff should be fully consulted before any decisions are taken.
“This Branch calls on the GS and NEC to suspend, with immediate effect, any proposed redundancies or other changes to staff terms and conditions, while a programme of full consultation and negotiation is entered into with the union’s staff, staff chapel officials and membership in good time to bring proposals to the next DM.
“In the interests of openness, this Branch calls on the GS and NEC to distribute the GS’s report “NUJ recovery plan – towards a sustainable union” to members.
“This Branch unconditionally opposes any redundancy of NUJ staff.
“This Branch believes that recruiting new members is the key to financial stability and instructs the Branch Committee to work with our chapels, other branches and the national union to draw up plans for a recruitment campaign.”
