  • Broadcasting organisations often attempt to impose contracts that demand all rights and which may also impose further conditions, such as wide liabilities. The NUJ is resisting these and recommends that everyone always read all contracts carefully. See Notes on negotiating rates for Broadcasting / Programme support – and members of the NUJ should seek advice on such contracts from the Freelance Office if necessary.
