The President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists NUJ, Chris Isiguzo says the union is determined more than ever to achieve a salary structure for media practitioners in the country.
The national president said this today in Enugu.
He assured that the NUJ would engage other stakeholders in the media industry to ensure that an enhanced salary package was achieved within the life of the 9th National Assembly NASS.
Isiguzo said that the union had fashioned out ways to interface with the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission, NBC, Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE and the Radio Television, Theater and Arts Workers Union, RATTAWU.
He said the prevailing circumstance where media workers were either paid meager salaries or left without salaries every month end was unacceptable to the union.
The NUJ president said that the safety of journalists in the country was of utmost importance to the union.
