Museum strikers exhibit defiance against pay cuts

by Marianne Owens
Issue No. 2470

National Museum of Wales workers struck for a further two days last weekend. 

It was part of a programme of rolling industrial action by the PCS union members.

Bosses are trying to scrap weekend and bank holiday premium pay—the lowest paid face losing up to £3,000 a year. 

Around 60 workers from across Wales joined a noisy march through the St Fagan’s Museum of Welsh Life in South Wales. Bosses had opened the open air site for a food festival. Workers at the Big Pit mining museum in South Wales struck last Sunday forcing bosses to close the site.
