NUJ calls for publishing jobs summit

<p>The National Union of Journalists is holding a Publishing Industry Jobs Summit in October. The event is billed as a chance to help shape the debate about how the union can turn the tide of cutbacks, redundancies and reorganisations currently taking place at magazine and book publishers through collective action.</p><p>&quot;It&rsquo;s presented as an inevitable result of the credit crunch, but there&rsquo;s nothing inevitable about it,&quot; the NUJ said. &quot;Magazine publishing remains intensely - sometimes outrageously - profitable, and the employers want to keep it that way, whatever the consequences for staff, freelances and readers.&quot;</p><p>The Jobs Summit will take place on Saturday 10th October 2009 from 11.30am in Headland House, Grays Inn Road, London, WC1X 8DP.</p><p>For further details, or to register, contact campaigns@nuj.org.uk.</p>
