DJ in English

The Danish Union of Journalists was founded in 1961. It is an independent member organisation – a trade union for every one who supplies content to the media or works in communication in either the public or the private sector. We are independent of party-political interests and our activities are financed entirely by membership fees.

This year, we have 17,500 members and about 70 employees in the trade union and the unemployment fund that assists members with all the problems they may experience in their working lives.

In brief, our general mission is to guarantee members optimum working conditions and ensure that the media and communication sectors actively promote openness and dialogue in society.
We fulfil our mission by:

• striving to be an indispensible professional organisation for anyone working in communication or producing content for the media;

• optimising the quality of jobs and professions for everyone employed in the media and communication sectors;

• contributing actively to national and international debates about  freedom of the press, freedom of expression and freedom of information

Our work to protect the interests of members is therefore twofold. On the one hand we are a traditional strong trade union and on the other we are an influential interest or pressure group within media politics fighting for optimum conditions for the Danish media and journalism in general. We are a strong organisation aiming to play a key role in the future.
