Draft motion 1: The union’s name

This DM recognises that the name, the National Union of Journalists, is problematic on two counts:

1. The union has not been a national union since 1922 when the Irish Free State became a separate country.

2. Many people eligible for membership do not consider themselves journalists.

The DM therefore instructs the NEC to amend the rules to change the union’s name to simply the NUJ.

Proposed by: Donnacha DeLong.
