Delegates at the NUJ's Annual Delegate Meeting in Southport in November will be asked to back an increase in union subs from 1 March 2010 which would boost NUJ coffers by £157,000 a year. The suggested annual subs rise, as proposed by the union's National Executive Council is: Grade 1 – £4.16p, Grade 2 – £6.24p, Grade 3 – £7.80p.
