No Privatisation at National Gallery
We did not stop the privatisation as it was an ideological choice made by the Trustees and the government as part of their austerity programme. But the campaign secured a number of victories for museum workers after 111 days of strike action and massive support from all over the country. A deal was agreed between PCS union and the National Gallery: London Living Wage to be paid, sacked union rep reinstated, guarantee over contracts for existing and new workers agreed. The PCS Culture Group that organised the campaign will continue their work to stop and reverse privatisations in all our museums and galleries.
