Trained union members in NWU’s Grievance and Contract Division (GCD) and other divisions have prepared model contracts in several genres. These contracts are available to members here. If you have been offered a contract, contact GCD before you sign it.
Contract Advisors can help you avoid pitfalls and probably even get a better deal. If a member believes his or her contract has been violated, Grievance Officers try to resolve the problem.
When multiple members have been affected by similar violations of their rights by the same publisher or employer, NWU may sue on their behalf.
