In their work, journalists must not communicate improper or disparaging notions of gender.

The UJF’s equality programme aims

  • to bring about operative equality plans for as many work communities of journalists as possible
  • to develop payroll systems that support equal pay for women and men
  • to ensure the equal deployment of women and men in the union’s shop steward and other positions
  • to generate a pro-gender equality climate in the media sector, and
  • to promote recognition of gender equality perspectives in journalism.

The UJF is a gender equality union

  • the union’s members comprise almost equal numbers of men and women
  • the union board includes both men and women
  • promoting gender equality is an integral part of the union’s work.
