It's not just newspapers facing cut backs

With an estimated 600 editorial jobs lost in the regional press alone since last summer, the NUJ is having to consider how it will cope with a falling membership.
The union's National Executive Committee discussed at the weekend the liklihood that membership of the NUJ will fall during the current recession. NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear reveals on his blog: "Even with just a 2% year on year membership fall for the next three years the union would have a shortfall of £500,000 per annum by 2012. It means the NEC is having to look hard at how we can save money."
