Union demands full investigation of Sport Group closure
1 April 2011
The NUJ has called for a full investigation into the collapse of the Sport Media Group. It has been claimed that it had been caused by indebtedness and poor financial management of a paper that had been performing well in recent months.
NUJ officials are helping staff and freelances to seek money they are owed in the wake of the sudden collapse of the publisher of the Daily Sport.
Administrators have been called in to the paper, and staff have been told there will be no publication until further notice.
There will be a meeting with the administrator on Monday to seek payments for staff and freelances and NUJ members will meet to consider the next steps.
