The World

February 11, 1986

A judge in London ordered the seizure of the assets of a major Fleet Street printing union and fined it $35,000 for ignoring a court order to stop disrupting delivery of Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers. Murdoch, in an effort to break union power, moved his operations last month to two high-technology plants and fired all his printers. The Society of Graphical and Allied Trades then ordered its members throughout the country not to distribute Murdoch papers. Judge Michael Davies found the union guilty of contempt for ignoring an injunction to withdraw the order.
