Unfortunately one of our LPB delegates has dropped out of representing the branch at the NUJ DM in October. Our reserve has also had to back out.
At the next branch meeting, Tuesday 28 August, we will need to re-elect a new delegate and two new reserves to fulfill our role at the DM.
The DM is where all union decisions are discussed and voted on democratically, delivering all the policy for the following years.
LPB has motions submitted on a change to the ethics code, fighting sexism in the industry and continuing to protect journalistic material and sources.
We are also encouraging our student members who would like to attend to contact us. Our branch will cover the cost of one student member to attend the DM and work with other students from across the country, to report on the delegate meeting. This is a great opportunity to work with other journalism students and meet a wide range of NUJ members from across the country.
