Jewish Chronicle NUJ chapel statement
17 April 2020
Following the announcement of the Jewish Chronicle and Jewish News closure, staff redundancies and a potential merger of the newspaper titles, the NUJ Jewish Chronicle chapel have made the following statement:
The Jewish Chronicle NUJ chapel said:
"We were devastated to learn on the eve of Passover that the Jewish Chronicle would be put into liquidation.
"This was made worse when we saw a war of words over the paper's future and our livelihoods break out in another newspaper.
"We seek urgent clarification — before 3pm today — from both the Kessler Foundation and the Consortium as to the details of their bids for the future of the paper."
