Pay strike at National Museums Liverpool

Issue No. 2074

Members of the PCS civil service workers union at National Museums Liverpool (NML) struck for the fourth time last Saturday in their dispute over below inflation pay increases.

These amount to just 1.37 percent for some of the most experienced staff.

The strike came as NML imposed the second part of a two year pay deal which will see a significant number of staff receive a pay rise of £5 per week after tax.

Jayson Sloss, the PCS negotiation officer for NML, said, “People are angry at this pitiful pay rise which amounts to a ticket to the derby after a month of saving.”
