handbook launched

In the past years, the media industry has undergone drastic changes due
to the emergence of new technologies in the way news are produced and
consumed as well as the structural changes driven by the economic

Strong Unions in Europe’’

tackle new challenges.

recruitment and organising strategies to reach out to young and new
types of journalists;
development of new services and training opportunities catering for the
need of different members;
continue to defend the labour rights of journalists through collective
bargaining and innovative campaigns;
advocate the protection of the professional and social rights of all
journalists, in particularly those of freelance and precarious workers,
through national and European legislation;
lobby for strong authors’ rights protection for journalists and fair

The handbook is available in English (download :
