National Gallery Strike
The National Gallery in London has appointed private company Securitas to run its security and visitor services. This has incensed members of the PCS union, who have been campaigning against privatisation. They are now going on an all out strike from tomorrow 11 August. Much of the free areas of the gallery will be closed. Shown is Jan van Eyck's Arnolfini Wedding (1434). CLICK for NG.
