Statement from The New Republic Union on Company's Reversal


Our voices were heard! After the company’s sudden announcement last week of a change in editorial leadership and its intention to centralize the magazine's operations in Washington D.C., Guild members had a number of conversations with management. As a result, TNR management has agreed that no employee currently working in New York City will be asked to relocate and no one will lose their jobs relating to the company’s decision to increase its footprint in D.C. 

While we remain disappointed with TNR’s failure to consult and communicate with us prior to this announcement, we are encouraged by our recent conversations and by management's willingness to change course in response to our concerns. We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively on delivering the mission and vision of The New Republic. 

Thank you to our colleagues and to our readers for your support. Our collective voice is critical in maintaining the standards that define our work.
