Freedom to join a union

The right of journalists and media workers to form and join trade unions is enshrined in international law.

International Labour Organisation Convention 87 establishes the right of all workers - staff or freelance - to form and join unions of their own choosing and for those organisations to be able to operate free from state or employer control.
