NUJ issues response advice to Herald freelancers

FREELANCE contributors to The Herald group of newspapers who are unhappy at new terms and conditions being offered to them are being advised by the National Union of Journalists as to how they might best respond.

And the NUJ’s assistant organiser in Scotland, Jim McNally, and NUJ president, James Doherty, have compiled a suggested response they believe freelancers will wish to use should they be disgruntled at what is being offered.

It has been written for writers, so that photographers, for instance, would be required to make any necessary amendments to reflect their situation.

In an email widely circulated yesterday, the NUJ was warning particularly over the copyright proposals from The Herald group.
