National Gallery Strike

Staff at the National Gallery in London are to go on strike from 3 to 7 February. The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union said its members had voted by more than nine to one for industrial action. According to the PCS, the National Gallery has reneged on a promise to introduce the London living wage; it is the only major museum or gallery in London that refuses pay it. The more recent idiocy from the Gallery is to privatise nearly 400 of its 600 staff. This is at least the third strike over privatisation, each one longer than the last. The two strikes in 2014 caused significant room closures, but the Sainsbury Wing remained open (CLICK).
