Media release: Toner appointed Scottish Organiser, at NUJ


JOHN Toner is the new NUJ National Organiser for Scotland.

He has worked for the union as a full-time official since 1996, first as the organiser for the North of England and Midlands and, since 2001, as the Freelance Organiser.

Toner was a prominent activist throughout the 1980s and 90s, holding every position in the union from Father of Chapel to President.

He worked as a sub-editor on the Paisley Daily Express and other S&UN titles.

Toner said: “I’m looking forward to the challenges of the new job, and to working back in Scotland again. It was too good an opportunity to turn down.”

Toner is now the NUJ’s longest-serving full-time official.
