    In Re Hartlebury Printers Ltd and others (in liquidation) [1992] IRLR 516 HC (0 other reports)

The facts

The Hartlebury Group was composed of three printing companies. The Group recognised what is now the Graphical Paper and Media Union for the purposes of collective bargaining.

On 31 May 1990, after sustaining large trading losses, the directors secured an administration order from the High Court under the Insolvency Act 1986 in order to provide protection from creditors so as to allow time for an agreement to be concluded with a third party to ensure the survival of the business.
