The following statement can be attributed to Peter Szekely, Secretary-Treasurer of the Newspaper Guild of New York:

"Our contract with Thomson Reuters prohibits management from dismissing anyone without just and sufficient cause. We don’t believe the company has the required justification here. At this point, we intend to vigorously defend Matthew Keys as we would any other hard-working member of the Newspaper Guild of New York who had been fired without cause."
