Originating out of ‘chapels’ in Fleet Street in the late nineteenth century, the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) is the world’s largest journalists’ union with over 20,000 members in the UK. During the 1980s and 1990s the union was faced with a variety of problems, caused largely by the introduction of new technology which irrevocably altered the traditional demarcation lines between journalists and printers and led to several major industrial confrontations. The union also had to counter attempts to shift from collective agreements to personal contracts and ultimately union derecognition. In addition to the usual union services, the NUJ has also produced a code of conduct which outlines the ethical and professional standards that journalists should seek to maintain.
