OK. As threatened yesterday, here are some suggestions on how the NUJ could get more clued-up about what’s happening in its industry. Do leave your ideas in the comments.
1. Fix your print and online publications
Irony of ironies, but your publications suck. Sorry, but nuj.org.uk is a shambles - why can’t I see who runs the union without logging in? Why is the rulebook only a PDF? What is an ADM, why does it matter, and why don’t you explain anything? Why can’t I apply for a press card online? In print, let’s not discuss your newsletters. And Adrian Monck is right - The Journalist is the worst periodical ever published.
