By November 2007, Bishop Michael Perham of Gloucester and Simon Kingston had resigned as SSG trustees, out of concern that there was now a 'conflict of interest' between the SSG management and the best interests of the SPCK. [ The Bookseller] The continued use of the SPCK name by the stores is now under review.
In June 2008 this organisation declared Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the Houston Bankruptcy courts. This was later converted to a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. The court appointed Trustee later (19 July 2008) put forward a motion to dismiss this bankruptcy citing a number of concerns, including that the named orgainisation did not exist in the US and that there were issues surrounding the declared assets. []
The union USDAW filed a number of employment tribunal cases for their members against SSG. [] this number increased after the chapter 11 filing when ssg sent an email terminating the employment of all staff and saying they would have to reapply to ENC Managment Company - a company which had been set up in March 2008 and to which both J. Mark and Philip W. Brewer were Directors. []
At this point the Employment Tribunals are still to held and the situation in regards to the Bankruptcy issues has yet to be concluded in the courts.
