National Gallery workers in central London have called a further six strike days in their fight with management over privatisation.
Bosses are refusing to budge over proposals to privatise 400 out of 600 jobs at the gallery.
Workers plan to walk out for five days from Monday of next week and again on 1 May, taking their total strike days this year to 23.
Gallery bosses suspended PCS union rep Candy Udwin earlier this year—but support is growing for her reinstatement.
The tendering process is due to start just days before the general election.
Workers are adamant that if a moratorium is not called on privatisation there will be extended action after then.

They plan a national collection day on 24 April to raise funds—and are urging people to invite strikers to speak at workplace and activist meetings.
