Gallery staff walk out to save jobs

Issue No. 2288

The National Gallery in London was largely closed last Saturday as gallery assistants in the PCS union walked out for two hours from 4pm.

The gallery recently cut its staffing levels following a 15 percent cut in funding.

Walkouts also took place on 19 January. More were set for Thursday and Saturday.
