United Kingdom -Deal at national gallery -October 04, 2015

Workers at the National Gallery have reached an agreement over wages and working conditions, following a 100-day strike. As reported in the March newsletter, workers at the National Gallery initiated industrial action after management announced that 400 of the total 600 jobs would be outsourced. The agreement that was reached on 2 October includes guarantees for staffing levels and rosters, unchanged working conditions for existing staff and comparable conditions for new staff. The National Gallery will also continue to pay the London living wage. A senior PCS trade union representative, who was fired on the eve of the strike, was reinstated.
