In January 1986 the Trades Union Congress (TUC) called on all trade unionists to boycott News International newspapers (which included The Times and The Sun) as a response to the industrial dispute between News International and its staff at its new plant at Wapping in London. The newspapers were banned from the Members' Library in Sheffield Town Hall and there were calls for libraries in Sheffield to also ban them. The matter was contentious. Sheffield Labour Group Executive resolved not to have the newspapers banned. The Library Association was also against a ban. The Director of Libraries considered the issue to be a resigning one. However, the City Council's Policy Committee did decide to ban the newspapers in libraries, the decision being ratified by the Council on 9 April 1986. News International's solicitor's threatened to take legal action against Sheffield Council. On 5th November 1986 the Queen's Bench Divisional Court (in a case involving London library authorities) declared the ban to be unlawful; Sheffield Council rescinded it earlier decision and the ban in Libraries was lifted.
