NUJ shocked at Exaro’s sudden closure
21 July 2016
The NUJ is extremely concerned by the news about the closure of Exaro and shocked by the sudden announcement straight after contradictory statements about being "open for business".
The union has questions relating to how and when closure was put forward and is calling on the company to ensure people are treated properly and fairly.
Laura Davison, NUJ national organiser, said:
"This has been a huge shock to staff. We will be seeking urgent talks with management. There are a lot of unanswered questions. In the meantime the company should do the right thing and guarantee that all payments to staff and freelance journalists will be honoured and proper processes will be followed. The company needs to recognise the sudden and shocking impact of this potential loss of their livelihoods on our members."
